Michel Foucault

Michel Foucault

French philosopher, historian and theorist of culture, a prominent representative of modern French structuralism
Madness designates the equinox between the vanity of night's hallucinations and the non-being of light's judgments.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What makes power hold good, what makes it accepted, is simply the fact that it doesn't only weigh on us as a force that says no, but that it traverses and produces things, it induces pleasure, forms knowledge, produces discourse. It needs to be considered as a productive network which runs through the whole social body, much more than as a negative instance whose function is repressionMore Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If those arrangements [the fundamental arrangements of knowledge] were to disappear as they appeared... then one can certainly wager that man would be erased, like a face drawn in sand at the edge of the sea.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don’t feel that it is necessary to know exactly what I am. The main interest in life and work is to become someone else that you were not in the beginning. If you knew when you began a book what you would say at the end, do you think that you would have the courage to write it? What is true for writing and for love relationships is true also for life. The game is worthwhile insofar as we don’t know where it will end.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Prison continues, on those who are entrusted to it, a work begun elsewhere, which the whole of society pursues on each individual through innumerable mechanisms of discipline.More Michel Foucault quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
