6 in stock

This selection of transcribed interviews and extracts from major works, including Discipline and PunishThe History of Sexuality and Madness and Civilization, introduces the key Foucauldian relationship between knowledge and power, and how it works to objectify and manipulate the individual. An authoritative introduction by editor Paul Rabinow tackles Foucault’s ‘three modes of objectification’: institutional isolation, scientific classification and self-objectification.
