Foucault News

News and resources on French thinker Michel Foucault (1926-1984)

Foucault/Derrida Fifty Years Later. The Futures of Genealogy, Deconstruction, and Politics, Edited by Olivia Custer, Penelope Deutscher, and Samir Haddad. Columbia University Press, 2016

Early in their careers, Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida argued over madness, reason, and history in an exchange that profoundly influenced continental philosophy and critical theory. In this collection, Amy Allen, Geoffrey Bennington, Lynne Huffer, Colin Koopman, Pierre Macherey, Michael Naas, and Judith Revel, among others, trace this exchange in debates over the possibilities of genealogy and deconstruction, immanent and transcendent approaches to philosophy, and the practical and theoretical role of the archive.
