PHIL 39.01 Foucault

This course will focus on the work of Michel Foucault. Foucault’s work, which combined historical and philosophical inquiry in innovative ways, helped shape many discussions across the humanities and social sciences in the second half of the twentieth century, and continues to be influential today. We will discuss Foucault’s thinking about a range of topics, including ones such as genealogy, power, discourse, sexuality, biopolitics, truth, knowledge, subjectivity, social identity, agency, and philosophical methodology.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
