Michel Foucault

Michel Foucault

French philosopher, historian and theorist of culture, a prominent representative of modern French structuralism
Relations of power "are indissociable from a discourse of truth, and they can neither be established nor function unless a true discourse is produced, accumulated, put into circulation, and set to work. Power cannot be exercised unless a certain economy of discourses of truth functions in, on the basis of, and thanks to, that power."More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Politics and the economy are not things that exist, or illusions, or ideologies. They are things that do not exist and yet which are inscribed in reality and fall under a regime of truth dividing the true and the false.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The judges of normality are present everywhere. We are in the society of the teacher-judge, the doctor-judge, the educator-judge, the social worker -judge.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One should try to locate power at the extreme of its exercise, where it is always less legal in character.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
