Foucault and Post Modernism
O'Farrell, Clare D. (2006) Foucault and Post Modernism. The Sydney Papers, 18(3-4), pp. 182-194.
The French philosopher Michel Foucault (1926-1984) is one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. This talk will situate his work in the context of recent media debates on postmodernism and give an account of his work, life and times and the critical reception of his work. Particular reference will be made to his controversial discussions on truth and power.
