Few philosophers have had as strong an influence on the twentieth century as Michel Foucault. His work has affected the teaching of any number of disciplines and remains, twenty years after his death, critically important. This newly available edition is drawn from the complete collection of all of Foucault’s courses, articles, and interviews, and brings his most important work to a new generation of readers. Aesthetics, Method and Epistemology (edited by James D. Faubion) surveys Foucault’s diverse but sustained address of the historical forms and interplay of passion, experience, and truth.

Michel Foucault (1926 1984) was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. He held a chair in the history of systems of thought at the Collège de France and lectured at universities throughout the world. The New Press has published his books Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology; Ethics; Power; The Essential Foucault; and The Chomsky-Foucault Debate (with Noam Chomsky). Foucault’s other books include Madness and Civilization, Discipline and Punish, The Order of Things, and The History of Sexuality.
James D. Faubion is a professor of anthropology at Rice University. He is the author of The Shadows and Lights of Waco and Modern Greek Lessons and the editor of Michel Foucault’s Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology and Power, both available from The New Press
The second of three volumes (following Ethics: Subjectivity and Truth, LJ 3/15/97) to be excerpted from the Gallimard collection of Foucault's oeuvre, this work provides American readers with diverse lectures, literary and film reviews, and interviews concerning language, literature, authorship, imagination, psychology, order, and history. At midpoint in the volume, the lecture "What is an author?" fairly describes the project of this series: "Writing unfolds like a game that invariably goes beyond its own rules and transgresses its limits." Each of these pieces is thoroughly self-contained but significant to a greater understanding of both its subject and its author. Wittily, one piece included here is Foucault's pseudonymously authored biographical dictionary entry on himself. For all scholars and many lay readers familiar with Foucault.?Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.
