Summary
"Among the Towering Intellectual Figures of the Last Half Century, perhaps the most versatile is Michel Foucault, who wrote classic texts on sexuality, madness, prison, and medicine. From 1971 until his death in 1984, Foucault gave public lectures at the world-famous College de France. Attended by thousands, these were seminal events in the world of French letters, and his ideas there expressed remain benchmarks of contemporary critical inquiry. The lectures comprising Abnormal begin by examining the role of psychiatry in modern criminal justice, and its method of categorizing individuals who "resemble their crime before they commit it." Building on the themes of societal self-defense developed in "Society Must Be Defended," the first volume of this series, Foucault shows how and why defining "abnormality" and "normality" were prerogatives of power in the nineteenth century, linking deformity, delinquency, and sexual deviancy. The College de France lectures add immeasurably to our appreciation of Foucault's work and offer a unique window into his thinking. Book jacket."--Jacket
