About this Item

New York. 1998. New Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 39. 486 pages. hardcover. 1565843290. keywords: October 15. inventory # 25127. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology explores one of the lesser known aspects of Foucault's production. This volume surveys the philosopher's diverse but sustained address of the historical forms and interplay of passion, experience and truth. These selections, most of which have not previously appeared in English translation, are a testament to the extraordinary range of Foucault's insight. They include commentaries on the work of de Sade, Rousseau, Marx, Freud, Roussel, and Bouletz. They also include some of Foucault's most trenchant reflections o the historical constitution and the historical diagnostics of both the aesthetic and the critical imagination, providing unique insight into the development of Foucault's original and exemplary philosophical program.

About this title


Few philosophers have had as strong an influence on the twentieth century as Michel Foucault. His work has affected the teaching of any number of disciplines and remains, twenty years after his death, critically important. This newly available edition is drawn from the complete collection of all of Foucault?s courses, articles, and interviews, and brings his most important work to a new generation of readers. Aesthetics, Method and Epistemology (edited by James D. Faubion) surveys Foucault?s diverse but sustained address of the historical forms and interplay of passion, experience, and truth.

Foucault?s other books include Madness and Civilization, Discipline and Punish, The Order of Things, and The History of Sexuality.
