It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Authors: Nilson , H. The book emphasises the affinity between Foucault's and Nietzsche's thought. Both philosophers tried to give clarity to modernity's arbitrary nature. Following on from Foucault's diagnostic enquiries into a 'History of Sexuality' and Nietzsche's appreciation of ancient culture, Nilson's study shows a practical consequence: the self-stylization of the individual.

Foucault generally uses this term to indicate the various institutional, physical and administrative mechanisms and knowledge structures, which enhance and maintain the exercise of power within the social body. In other words archaeology is about looking at history as a way of understanding the processes that have led to what we are today. The tools Foucault uses to practice both methods are to all intents and purposes the same. But, if archaeology addresses a level at which differences and similarities are determined, a level where things are simply organized to produce manageable forms of knowledge, the stakes are much higher for genealogy. Genealogy deals with precisely the same substrata of knowledge and culture, but Foucault now describes it as a level where the grounds of the true and the false come to be distinguished via mechanisms of power.
Knowledge, as represented in the history of ideas and in studies of knowledge paradigms and bibliographical structures, appears coherent and rationalistic. By examining the work of the French historian and philosopher Michel Foucault, this view is discussed. Special attention is given, in any cultural or scientific interpretation of an age, to the need to get behind the dominant or hegemonistic body of institutionalized and documented knowledge. We need to investigate the assumptions and underlying influences on the ways in which discourse embody and shape meanings. What preconceptually underpins, we might ask, what people know as knowledge.

In "Truth and Power" Michel Foucault revisits the major theoretical trends and questions of his career. He is a thinker who knows no bounds of subject or field. His ideas stretch from literature to science, from psychology to labor. He deals in a currency that is accepted everywhere: truth and power.
Not just economic power Marx or status Weber , but power instantiated in rules, language and institutions. He is one of the first to make this claim so starkly. Things emerge accidentally, and are often the result of a plurality of sources. It refers to the order of a subject — an actor driving history, rather than events.
The most influential postmodern thinker for the discipline of history was the French philosopher Michel Foucault. According to Foucault, the aim of history writing was not to produce moral lessons for the present, nor to identify the origin of contemporary ideas and practices. For him history writing was a means to 'critque' the present.
Power for Foucault is what makes us what we are, operating on a quite different level from other theories:. And it induces regular effects of power.
- Стратмор шумно вздохнул. - Увы, в мире полно наивных людей, которые не могут представить себе ужасы, которые нас ждут, если мы будем сидеть сложа руки. Я искренне верю, что только мы можем спасти этих людей от их собственного невежества. Сьюзан не совсем понимала, к чему он клонит.
