Join us as we delve into Michel Foucault’s seminal 1982 article “The Subject and Power”. This video explores the work of Paul Michel Foucault, one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. From his famous book “Discipline and Punish” to his lesser-known work “The History of Sexuality”, we examine the full spectrum of Foucault’s ideas and theories. We focus on his examination of power, knowledge, and the relationship between the two, and how they play out in society. We also consider the importance of Foucault’s contributions to the fields of philosophy, sexuality, and epistemology, and his impact on the popular imagination. Whether you’re familiar with the power and knowledge dynamic in Foucault’s philosophy, or just getting started, this video provides an in-depth and insightful examination of his groundbreaking ideas.
