Product Description

Review

"'Perhaps one day this century will be known as Deleuzian.' -- Michel Foucault 'Certainly the most original and authoritative comment on Foucault to date... a portrait of Foucault as a truly new kind of thinker, an 'inside' perspective on Foucault's project that will be difficult to surpass.' -- Teaching Philosophy"

Format: Paperback
Deleuze is perhaps the most authoritative of Foucault's commentators. Not because of their friendship, collaborations, or dialogues. Not even because of the enormous respect each held for the other. If this book were written by a stranger, it would still be a part of the Foucault canon. Because it grasps hold of the Foucault project and grapples with it, refusing to let go and refusing to let it slink away.
The book is divided into two, where the first part includes articles previously published on certain works (The Archeology of Knowledge, and Discipline and Punish), and the second struggles to elucidate and elaborate the project of "Thinking Otherwise". This part embraces both Foucault's early thoughts on transgression and his later accounts on techniques of the self. It draws on his histories and his theories of power: Foucault's method and his objectives. It also reflects Deleuze's own concerns with thought and the fold.
In terms of texts, this book is important because it expands on the thoughts only sketchily worked out in his article in "Magazine Litteraire" (published 1994: written in 1977, and translated in Davidson's Foucault and his Interlocutors, UofChicago Press, 1997). It is also tantalising in its hints towards and references to Foucault's unpublished work in volume 4 of the History of Sexuality.

Deleuze is a difficult writer. While I find him incomprehensible in some texts, there are others, such as "Postscript on the Societies of Control", where he is less obscure. I think this text straddles the line, although leans more towards the 'less obscure' side of things.

On its face, this is a simple exposition of Foucault's work. However, Deleuze, who was good friends with Foucault, offers an interesting, unique analysis and defence of Foucault's ouevre. Although the text is hard going in places, it's full of rich insights and includes a number of quotable quotes (such as my favourite, "government comes before state"). I would therefore recommend it to any students grappling with the main concepts or areas Foucault wrote about: archaeology, genealogy or power.

Quite repetitive. Describes Foucault's Archaeology of Knowledge. The Power/Knowledge relation is desire and the differentiation of the differentiator, the precursor referred to in Difference and Repetition.
