Foucault

This book places Michel Foucault's work in its turbulent philosophical and political context, and critically explores his mission to expose the links between knowledge and power in the human sciences, their discourses and institutions. It explains how Foucault overturned our assumptions about the experience and perception of madness, sexuality and criminality, and the often brutal social practices of confinement, confession and discipline.

    Psychologists are incapable of coherently defining the object of their study. Psychology is composite empiricism, codified in literary fashion for teaching purposes – and it’s a police discipline.
