The second volume in the definitive collection of Foucault's shorter writings, a Voice Literary Supplement bestseller. Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology explores one of the lesser known aspects of Foucault's oeuvre. This volume surveys the philosopher's diverse but sustained address of the historical forms and interplay of passion, experience, and truth. These selections, most of which have not previously appeared in English translation, are a testament to the extraordinary range of Foucault's insight. They include commentaries on the work of de Sade, Rousseau, Marx, Freud, Roussel, and Boulez. They also include some of Foucault's most trenchant reflections on the historical constitution and the historical diagnostics of both the aesthetic and the critical imagination, providing unique insight into the development of Foucault's original and exemplary philosophical program.
