Foucault and Feminism Shane Phelan, University of New Mexico Foucault's approach challenges many of the frameworks and concepts of both liberal and com-munitarian political thought. By documenting the links between power and knowledge at a variety of levels, he makes us suspect theories that pinpoint a single source of oppressions and problems.

Foucault's most sustained consideration of a monomania diagnosis concerns the case of Pierre Riviere. Foucault and the other seminarists do interpret Riviere's memoir; indeed, they interpret the memoir heavy-handedly, arguing that Riviere's murder and memoir were undertaken for entirely different reasons than their author : Chloë Taylor. In this classic account of madness, Michel Foucault shows once and for all why he is one of the most distinguished European philosophers since the end of World War II. Madness and Civilization, Foucault's first book and his finest accomplishment, will change the way in which you think about society. Evoking shock, pity, and fascination, it. I was reading a book on feminism and it made reference to Foucault. I would highly suggest McWhorter's book that does a genealogy of race, sex/gender, and sexuality in the US, though. Applying Foucault directly from the French context to the US context, or any other context he doesn't directly talk about, is a bit of a misuse of his thought. Foucault, Femininity, and the Modernization of Patriarchal Power In a striking critique of modern society, Michel Foucault has argued that the rise of parliamentary institutions and of new conceptions of political liberty was accompanied by a darker counter-movement, by the emergence of a new and unprecedented discipline directed against the body.
