Description

About the Book :

The lectures comprising Abnormal begin by examining the role of psychiatry in modern criminal justice, and its method of categorizing individuals who resemble their crime before they commit it. The Coll de France lectures add immeasurably to our appreciation of Foucaults thought and offer a unique window into his thinking.

About the Author :

Michel Foucault born Paul-Michel Foucault (15 October 1926 25 June 1984) was a French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas. He held a chair at the Coll de France with the title "History of Systems of Thought," and lectured at the University at Buffalo and the University of California, Berkeley. Foucault is best known for his critical studies of social institutions, most notably psychiatry, social anthropology of medicine, the human sciences and the prison system, as well as for his work on the history of human sexuality. His writings on power, knowledge, and discourse have been widely influential in academic circles. In the 1960s, he was associated with structuralism, a theoretical movement in social anthropology from which he later distanced himself. He also rejected the poststructuralist and postmodernist labels later attributed to him, preferring to classify his thought as a critical history of modernity rooted in Immanuel Kant. His project was particularly influenced by Nietzsche, his "genealogy of knowledge" being a direct allusion to Nietzsche's "genealogy of morality". In a late interview he definitively stated: "I am a Nietzschean."Foucault was listed as the most cited scholar in the humanities in 2007 by the ISI Web of Science.
