MICHEL FOUCAULT AND KNOWLEDGE
Part Two of a Five Part Series on Michel Foucault, Michel Foucault and Knowledge was posted on January 10, 2014. This post is an examination of Foucault’s seminal investigation on the ways in which cultures create discourses that evolve over time into “knowledge.” This series can also be accessed through with Heathwood Press, an English journal of philosophy, where Dr. Willette is a contributing writer.
Like many French intellectuals, Michel Foucault witnessed the now-legendary days of May, 1968 in which the students and later the proletariat or working class rose up against the forces of law and order, against oppressive institutions and against post-war materialistic society itself.
