Michel Foucault, Interview with Madeleine Chapsal, The Journal of Continental Philosophy Translated by Mark G. E. Kelly, Volume 1, Issue 1, 2020, Pages 29-35
In this 1966 interview, published here in English translation for the first time, Michel Foucault positions himself as a representative of a ‘generation’ of French thinkers who turned towards the analysis of ‘structures’ and away from the phenomenological approaches that had previously dominated French philosophy. In this, Foucault claims inspiration not only from older French scholars—namely Georges Dumézil, Jacques Lacan, and Claude Lévi-Strauss—but also from the science of genetics.
