Summary and Info
Книга Foucault Foucault Книги Психология, философия Автор: Gilles Deleuze Год издания: 1988 Формат: pdf Издат.:Univ of Minnesota Pr Страниц: 157 Размер: 8,3 Mb ISBN: 0816616744 Язык: Английский0 (голосов: 0) Оценка:Reader's review:Being a Foucault fanatic who had never read Deleuze, I bought this merely because I wanted to read more about my favorite author and also because I knew how influential and important Deleuze was, not only for Foucault himself but in the field of continental philosophy in the last century.The further I read, the more fascinating I found Deleuze's analysis of Foucault's works and methods. Although he places his focus on mainly "The Archaeology of Knowledge" and "Discipline and Punish", he makes constant references to Foucault's other important works. What stands out as completely unique is the utterly and unsurpassably rigorous way in which Deleuze reads Foucault. Deleuze's prose is decidedly difficult, but if you're a Foucault reader who has had some contact with postmodern theories in the past then you'll at least grasp the meaning of his words. What's more, Deleuze breaks down Foucault's epistemological and methodological theorizing to their barest, making this an extremely important learning experience for those who wish to understand Foucault in-depth.This book is essential, but I also recommend you read it once you've become fairly familiar with Foucault... and as I said, I had never read Deleuze but that didn't stop me from finding this book to be absolute food for thought. Granted, it needs to be read MANY times to fully appreciate its potential and maybe integrate Deleuze's reflections into any kind of practical research... because I also found it to be enlightening in that respect.Had Foucault lived to read this book, I'm sure he would have been humbled to tears.Magnificent.
