      Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas He held a chair at the Coll ge de France with the title History of Systems of Thought, and lectured at the University at Buffalo and the University of California, Berkeley.Foucault is best known for his critical studies of social institutions, most notably psychiatry, medicine, the human sciences and the prison system, as well as for his work on the history of human sexuality His writings on power, knowledge, and discourse have been widely influential in academic circles In the 1960s Foucault was associated with structuralism, a movement from which he distanced himself Foucault also rejected the poststructuralist and postmodernist labels later attributed to him, preferring to classify his thought as a critical history of modernity rooted in Immanuel Kant Foucault s project was particularly influenced by Nietzsche, his genealogy of knowledge being a direct allusion to Nietzsche s genealogy of morality In a late interview he definitively stated I am a Nietzschean Foucault was listed as the most cited scholar in the humanities in 2007 by the ISI Web of Science.

    1. UPDATE I realize now as I read Dreyfus and Rabinow that I completely misread this book I read it too quickly, and the book is maddeningly eccentric and so difficult to comprehend Further, I read it without sufficient context either of this book itself, or of Foucault s corpus, or of the philosophical background in which or against which MF is operating The problem is intensified by the fact that Foucault is one of those thinkers who changed his mind extensively from first to last on important ma [...]


    2. Some of what we read here has become commonplace in the world of ideas, but this is where it started for many thinkers of the twentieth century In this volume Foucault illustrates how notions like madness are socially and culturally constructed in any given age and place The criteria for madness are made up, by us, they in part invented for particular social and political purposes Leper colonies housed confined kept from society those with this disease, and when leprosy largely died out there we [...]



    3. Philosophy for Foucault is a discourse, I guess a series of texts that cluster around a single topic and have a meaning as much based on their history as their current meaning It is too easy to get tangled in knots with words here but this book is actually quite a simple read and incredibly interesting There is the bit that is often quoted the idea that hysteria was once considered to be a woman s madness caused by her womb wandering around her body and thereby causing mental problems I m quite [...]


    4. I must admit, I didn t read this entire book However, I do feel I read enough of it to get the general idea Foucault is trying to distance himself from history here He dislikes the victorious narrative of history and instead seeks to build an anthropology based around one aspect of the human sciences, employing the method of archaeology Borrowing Nietzsche s genealogy approach, Foucault excavates various uses of confinement or separation of the madman overtime, and looks at shifts and discontinu [...]

    6. It took me almost two months to finish this behemoth, but it was worth it Two months ago, I was reading an article in the New York Times on modern Catholicism that mentioned Foucault, and from there I read a brief overview on There I found a reference to the History of Madness, Foucault s doctoral thesis, and since I m interested in insanity, asylums and so forth, I checked this one out of the library.I m not going to lie, this is a dense tome I read it in 5 20 page increments, mostly because I [...]

    8. By sopho year in college I was beginning to think of becoming a psychotherapist and actually held two jobs at a psychiatric hospital during the year following, one setting up a treatment assessment program, the other administrating and evaluating diagnostic tests such as the MMPI Then, later, back at Grinnell, I was trained in drug counseling a worked in the school s crisis center as well as in its draft counseling office My real interest was in continental depth psychology, but the jobs and the [...]


    9. I was a double major in psychology and English as an undergraduate, with a minor in philosophy When I graduated in January of 1998, I hadn t yet heard about whether I d been admitted to graduate school and couldn t find a job teaching English, my back up plan I decided to turn my philosophy minor into a major, as I already had courses than required for a minor and was only 4 away It so happened that I was missing were mostly already determined 1 history of ancient philosophy, 2 classical modern [...]



    10. Foucault s first published book, when he might have identified as a structuralist I admit I glossed over the center chapters including the classifications of various archaic mental illnesses, but I read deeply the first two chapters discussing banishment and confinement as technologies of discipline regularization Pairs well with Conscience and Convenience The Asylum and Its Alternatives in Progressive America.


    11. So far I m about fifty or sixty pages in, and I ve completely lost track of what this gibbering madman is raving about Perhaps this is a poor translation, but after the first ten pages even individual sentences are meaningless and syntactically ambiguous I re read paragraphs, sometimes ten or twelve times, but I simply can t make any of this make any sense I ll slog through for a couple chapters to see if it gets any better, but I don t have much hope for this basket of word salad.




    12. Pascal Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness ix If folly leads each man into a blindness where he is lost, the madman, on the contrary, reminds each man of his truth in a comedywhere each man deceives the other and dupes himself, the madman is comedy to the second degree the deception of deception he utters, in his simpleton s language which makes no show of reason, the words of reason that release, in the comic, the comedy he speaks love to lover [...]


    13. Foucault provides context for our dozens of American cities now arresting the homeless, from Houston to Reno We follow the lead of London in 2014, around Marble Arch, and of New Delhi, late last year preparing for Ivanka Trump s visit, not to trouble her with have nots His subtitle is Insanity in the Age of Reason He also illustrates how the asylums built to ward off great medical threats to society, leprosy and bubonic plague, found new use in ostracizing those who violated the Work Ethic the s [...]



    14. arrgghhhya ampun satu hal yang membuat sebal baca buku filsafat adalah saling berjejalnya kata kata langit bak dewata yang susah dimengerti makhluk makhluk berotak terestial seperti saia dalam bukunya, fuih T_Tbanyak yang berpendapat filsafat itu sulit dan tidak menarik tapi menururt saia, bukan karena isi nya saja yang rumit, penggunaan bahasa bahasa dewata ituh justru malah meperparah filsafat untuk mudah dimengerti, yang ujung ujungnya membuat kebanyakan orang keder baca buku filsafat PPun de [...]


    15. This brilliant book, which traces the shifting European discourse systems about madness from the late Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century, describes the process by which measures dealing with the insane shifted from exposure as on the ship of fools, if such things actually existed, or by wandering the countryside to confinement alongside the idle poor in hospitals and charity wards to paternalistic medical care by doctors who, upon realizing that there were no curative techniques for thes [...]
