Foucault, Michel


"'Madness and Civilization' shows how madness, bit by bit, lost all its metaphysical and occult powers, how it was dymystified...Foucault is genuinely in favor of freedom; it is more precise to say, perhaps, he is opposed to authority, particularly the authority of physicians and psychiatrists... What Foucault is finally against, however, is the authority of reason. In this connection he is correct to regard Freud as the presiding figure."Foucault, Michel is the author of 'Madness and Civilization A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason', published 1988 under ISBN 9780679721109 and ISBN 067972110X.
