☯ Full Synopsis : ""A truly magnificent book... If there is a more comprehensive book on Foucault's work I have yet to see it. I anticipate those teaching and taking courses on Foucault's work will find Clare O'Farrell's book to be an invaluable resource." - Barry Smart, University of Portsmouth "A marvellous introduction. This volume captures the penetrating interdisciplinary concerns that have made Foucault a guide to so many beyond the frontiers of philosophy and history, beyond the borders of the academic community itself... This is an excellent introduction for the general reader to a passionate mind that continues to spread its influence." - James Bernauer, Boston College "Offers the best introduction to Foucault's philosophy... Superb glossary of major terms; excellent bibliography and chronology. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." - C.E. Reagan, Kansas State University, CHOICE Michel Foucault's work is one of the most influential sources of ideas in the humanities and social sciences today. Clare O'Farrell offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to Foucault's enormous, diverse and challenging output. Her book provides a range of practical tools and a reference work for readers who wish to understand and apply his ideas at both introductory and advanced levels. This volume includes: A discussion of Foucault's situation in the contemporary context exploring his role as an iconic thinker, with clear explanations as to why his work is so difficult to come to grips with, and also importantly, why it is of interest to so many people. The location of Foucault's work within its own historical, social and political setting. Brief summaries in chronological order of all of Foucault's major works, including the more recently published volumes of lectures. The organization of Foucault's work around five interrelated assumptions which underpin his world view: namely order, history, truth, power and ethics. Ideas for which he is well-known, such as archaeology, genealogy, discourse, discipline, and governmentality are discussed within the framework of these. A chronology of Foucault's life, work and times. An extensive list of key concepts in Foucault's work with detailed references pointing to where the relevant material can be found in his writings. A wide-ranging list of resources and a bibliography of Foucault's work for easy consultation."Article| Clare O'Farrell| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Les sciences humaines d'aujourd'hui sont plus que du domaine du savoir : déjà des pratiques, déjà des institutions. Michel Foucault analyse leur apparition, leurs liens réciproques et la philosophie qui les supporte. C'est tout récemment que l' "homme " a fait son apparition dans notre savoir. Erreur de croire qu'il était objet de curiosité depuis des millénaires : il est né d'une mutation intérieure à notre culture. Cette mutation, Michel Foucault l'étudie, à partir du XVIIe siècle, dans les trois domaines où le langage classique - qui s'identifiait au Discours - avait le privilège de pouvoir représenter l'ordre des choses : grammaire générale, analyse des richesses, histoire naturelle. Au début du XIXe siècle, une philologie se constitue, une biologie également, une économie politique. Les choses y obéissent aux lois de leur règne du Discours s'achève et, à la place qu'il laisse vide, l' " homme " apparaît - un homme qui parle, vit, travaille, et devient ainsi objet d'un savoir possible. Il ne s'agit pas là d'une " histoire " des sciences humaines, mais d'une archéologie de ce qui nous est contemporain. Et d'une conscience critique : car le jour, prochain peut-être, où ces conditions changeront derechef, l' " homme " disparaîtra, libérant la possibilité d'une pensée nouvelle."Article| Michel Foucault| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Michel Foucault was one of the twentieth century’s most influential thinkers whose work has unsettled and transformed the field of social philosophy and the social sciences. The essays and articles selected for this volume are written by many of the most important of Foucault’s interpreters and interlocutors and show the range of Foucault’s influence and the debates it has provoked about Foucault’s own approaches and in relation to substantive areas of social philosophy and social science such as power, critique, enlightenment, law, governance, ethics and truthfulness. This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to, and overview of, the development of Foucault’s thought and demonstrates its enduring significance on our understanding of how we have become what we are."Article| David Owen| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Drawing from the ideas of Michel Foucault, this book offers a critical examination of today’s dominant discourse of educational leadership. Foucault’s understanding of critique is as a ‘permanent’ ethos in which humans explore the nature of their existence but at the same time query the limits imposed upon them, and probe opportunities for increasing freedom. This book outlines the key concepts in the work of Foucault, and demonstrates how his concepts of discourse, power/knowledge, and governmentality offer an understanding of how ideas of educational leadership and management have emerged, how they serve to establish a discipline, and how they construct individuals – pupils, teachers, and head teachers - in particular ideological ways. The discourse of educational leadership and management not only represents a specific means of ‘governing’ education but also calls for the development of approved management and leadership skills and behaviours. The related focus on cultivating, valuing, and rewarding effective leaders is eminently suited to Foucauldian critique, which not only questions the basis for its assumptions and norms, but also examines the way in which the subjects of ELMA - today’s educational professionals - are both constructed by the discourse and are called upon to shape themselves accordingly. Included in the book: - educational leadership as discourse - educational leadership as discipline - power and educational leadership - governmentality and educational leadership. By both applying theory and examining empirical exemplars, this volume offers a challenge to dominant leadership discourse and suggests alternative understandings of the field and approaches to practice. The book will be of value to researchers and postgraduate students with an interest in educational leadership, management and administration, as well as to practitioners in the school system."Article| Donald Gillies| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "It is impossible to imagine contemporary critical theory without the work of Michel Foucault. His radical reworkings of the concepts of power, knowledge, discourse and identity have influenced the widest possible range of theories and impacted upon disciplinary fields from literary studies to anthropology. Aimed at students approaching Foucault's texts for the first time, this volume offers: * an examination of Foucault's contexts * a guide to his key ideas * an overview of responses to his work * practical hints on 'using Foucault' * an annotated guide to his most influential works * suggestions for further reading. Challenging not just what we think but how we think, Foucault's work remains the subject of heated debate. Sara Mills' Michel Foucault offers an introduction to both the ideas and the debate, fully equipping student readers for an encounter with this most influential of thinkers."Article| Barry Smart| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "When one defines "order" as a sorting of priorities, it becomes beautifully clear as to what Foucault is doing here. With virtuoso showmanship, he weaves an intensely complex history of thought. He dips into literature, art, economics and even biology in The Order of Things, possibly one of the most significant, yet most overlooked, works of the twentieth century. Eclipsed by his later work on power and discourse, nonetheless it was The Order of Things that established Foucault's reputation as an intellectual giant. Pirouetting around the outer edge of language, Foucault unsettles the surface of literary writing. In describing the limitations of our usual taxonomies, he opens the door onto a whole new system of thought, one ripe with what he calls "exotic charm". Intellectual pyrotechnics from the master of critical thinking, this book is crucial reading for those who wish to gain insight into that odd beast called Postmodernism, and a must for any fan of Foucault."Article| Michel Foucault| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is the first to systematically reconstruct Michel Foucault’s political and philosophical thought across his career. It argues, in the areas of epistemology, power, subjectivity, resistance, politics, and ethics, that Foucault’s work represents the articulation of a consistent and progressive philosophical and political viewpoint. The work is thus an important intervention into the field of Foucault studies, where many continue to claim that Foucault’s work is contradictory, nonsensical, or nihilistic."Article| Mark G.E.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Michel Foucault's influential work spanned a wide array of intellectual disciplines, his writings having been widely taken up in philosophy, history, literary criticism and political theory. Focusing on the implications of Foucault's theories for education, whilst characterizing them as provocative, problematizing, poetic and playful, Lynn Fendler describes the historical context for understanding Foucault's ground breaking critiques. Including a discussion of his major theories of disciplinary power, genealogy, discourse and subjectivity, this text provides generative explanations of concepts, using analogies to the Internet and to food, in order to connect Foucault's theories to everyday experience."Article| Lynn Fendler| Statement ..."
