    این کتاب نزدیک به بیست سال پیش به فارسی ترجمه شد، زمانی که هنوز اصطلاحات فوکویی چندان به فارسی شناخته شده نبودند و طبعا خواننده امروزی که مدتیه با این اصطلاحات آشناست در ابتدا از ترجمه‌ی بشیریه کمی گیج میشه. اما مساله‌ی اصلی من با ترجمه‌ی این کتاب، بخش مربوط به بنیان‌های فلسفی دیرینه‌شناسی فوکو بود. به نظرم مترجم در نهایت بی‌مسئولیتی و بی‌حوصلگی این بخش‌ها رو ترجمه کرده و من تمام مدت نگاهی به متن انگلیسی کتاب داشتم تا جملات خیلی خیلی ساده‌ای که بیهوده پیچیده شده بود رو بفهمم! مترجم شاهکار دیگه‌ای این کتاب نزدیک به بیست سال پیش به فارسی ترجمه شد، زمانی که هنوز اصطلاحات فوکویی چندان به فارسی شناخته شده نبودند و طبعا خواننده امروزی که مدتیه با این اصطلاحات آشناست در ابتدا از ترجمه‌ی بشیریه کمی گیج میشه. اما مساله‌ی اصلی من با ترجمه‌ی این کتاب، بخش مربوط به بنیان‌های فلسفی دیرینه‌شناسی فوکو بود. به نظرم مترجم در نهایت بی‌مسئولیتی و بی‌حوصلگی این بخش‌ها رو ترجمه کرده و من تمام مدت نگاهی به متن انگلیسی کتاب داشتم تا جملات خیلی خیلی ساده‌ای که بیهوده پیچیده شده بود رو بفهمم! مترجم شاهکار دیگه‌ای هم داشت.مثلا این که بعد از اشاره ی متن به مارکی دو ساد مترجم پانویس کرده بود: مارکی دوساد نویسنده‌ی آثار عشقی و احساسی است! مساله ی ناراحت کننده اینجاست که این خزعبلات بعد از بیست سال و بعد از ده‌ها بار تجدید چاپ کتابی که یکی از مهم‌ترین شرح‌ها بر اندیشه‌ی فوکوست، ویرایش نشده. از ترجمه که بگذریم، کتاب مفید و مهمی بود و متون خارجی اغلب پیشنهاد میکنن این کتاب رو قبل از مطالعه‌ی آثار فوکو بخونیم. من فکر میکردم بعد از مطالعه‌ی 3 شرح بر و 4 کتاب از فوکو به راحتی این کتاب رو میخونم و میفهمم. اما خب همونطور که گفتم بخش‌هایی از کتاب (مثل تاثیر پدیدارشناسی بر فوکو) که باقی متون فارسی کمتر بهش پرداخته بودن و واقعا مهم بود، اینجا خیلی بد و نامفهوم ترجمه شده بود و برای همین خوندنش خیلی طول کشید. شاید میشد به کتاب 5 ستاره داد اما با توجه به اینکه بخشیش رو درست متوجه نشدم بهتره به چهارستاره قناعت کنم.

    Probably one of the top two secondary texts on Foucault I've ever read. The other being Deleuze's book entitled, Foucault. Dreyfus reveals the depth and grandeur of Foucault's body of work by revealing all of the intellectual threads that run through each and every book. He goes in chronological order to reaveal that Foucault was always thinking as a Post-Structuralist. Dreyfus can actually write about complex issues in an easy to read manner, which is refreshing.

    There is no better book to understand Foucault's oeuvre and methodology. The authors had the unique vantage point of being personally acquainted with Foucault, who delivered a set of lectures at the University of California Berkeley during the early 1980s. The text is the result of the debates that Rabinow had with Dreyfus and Searle over whether Foucault's work was closer to structuralism or hermeneutics. The conclusion is neither.

The text is the result of the debates that Rabinow had with Dreyfus and Searle over whether Foucault's work was closer to structuralism or hermeneutics. The conclusion is neither. Foucault's "interpretive analytics," as the authors call his method of discourse analysis, begins with archeology in the late 1960s and early 1970s and traverses genealogy in his later work in the mid 1970s to early 1980s. Despite its clarity and sound arguments, I wouldn't recommend reading this before reading Foucault's work first. Inevitably, the reader will feel confused or dazzled by Foucault's prose. But part of the process of engaging with Foucault is understanding the radical departure of his method from traditional philosophy and historical research. Once the reader has read a book or two (preferably Discipline and Punish or the History of Sexuality), then I would recommend checking this out (especially chapter 5) for further clarity and elucidation.

    This book is extremely useful. It is mainly reviews his books and not his lectures (which many were published after this book). I would recommend this for anyone that has already read a couple of Foucault's books and need to connect the dots a little better.

    i read this book years ago in an effort to understand Foucault. I haven't been interested in Foucault for some time, but recently I agreed to give a presentation about him and returned to this book . It is not a biography or a synopsis. It is a rigorous attempt to come to terms with Foucault's intellectual trajectory and his often confusing way of presenting his ideas. For someone like myself who is only superficially familiar with 'continental philosophy' this book is very helpful for providing i read this book years ago in an effort to understand Foucault.

    Out of all French intellectuals/structuralists/post-structuralists/etc, Foucault certainly is far more interesting when compared to his contemporaries. Dreyfus and Rabinow help make clear Foucault's project-object and for the most part, I found it an enjoyable read! Now does that mean I will do a deep dive into Foucault's proper works? Probably not, at least not any time soon. Out of all French intellectuals/structuralists/post-structuralists/etc, Foucault certainly is far more interesting when compared to his contemporaries.

    While we should be aware that this presents a particular narrative about the transitions in Foucault's thinking, one can easily see why this is one of the best known overviews of Foucault's thought. It is by no means an easy text but very rewarding.

    33PPL referring to the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty 'Foucault does not argue that such an existential phenomenology of the body is naive or self-contradictory. He simply points out that this project is ambiguous: "The analysis of actual experience is a discourse of mixed nature: it is directed to a specific yet ambiguous stratum, concrete enough for it to be possible to apply to it a meticulous and descriptive language, yet sufficiently removed from the positivity of things for it to be possible, 33PPL referring to the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty 'Foucault does not argue that such an existential phenomenology of the body is naive or self-contradictory. He simply points out that this project is ambiguous: "The analysis of actual experience is a discourse of mixed nature: it is directed to a specific yet ambiguous stratum, concrete enough for it to be possible to apply to it a meticulous and descriptive language, yet sufficiently removed from the positivity of things for it to be possible, from that starting-point, to escape from that naivete, to contest it and seek foundations for it" (*OT* 321). He adds that, therefore, it is unstable and can never be completed: "What is given in experience and what renders experience possible correspond to one another in an endless oscillation" (*OT* 336).' I think that this shows rather concisely my fundamental problem with the philosophical underpinnings of Foucault's work. It seems to me that he is constantly struggling to create a system that avoids the absurdities inherent in Merleau-Ponty's or Husserl's phenomenologically existentialist philosophies, but that still exists within the same immediate family of thought. The ambiguous and ultimately subjective nature of these men's worlds disturbs Foucault greatly. He wants to describe man's existence with the same sort of universality, the same type of solid referents, as he could with the pure sciences. But while I certainly respect the decision to devote one's life to such a quixotic enterprise, I must admit that I find its origin, goal, and methods to be uniquely uncompelling. I accept that Merleau-Ponty and Husserl created a sort of endless loop of reference—resulting in a hall-of-mirrors, turtles-all-the-way-down sort of picture of the world. But where Foucault is repelled by this amorphous foundation, I am rather thrilled. Because it seems to me (as I am sure it seemed to the gentlemen themselves) that any theory of humanity should be no less contradictory and absurd than humanity itself. An ambiguous, ultimately subjective theory of knowledge certainly jibes with my experience of knowledge-gathering. This being the case, I cannot muster more than confused amazement at the leaps and circles and dances—worthy of the most talented circus performer—that Foucault sets himself to in pursuit of this pure, hermetic (if not hermeneutic) epistemology. And, to be entirely honest, I am amazed that one could spend one's life trying to iron out philosophical inconsistency and still not wind up with a consistent philosophy. Had I been in Foucault's shoes, I'd have rather come up with a system that was untrue and consistent than one that was, as his archaeologies and genealogies undoubtedly were, largely true but inconsistent—just for the sake of saving face, if nothing else. At least then, you've done what you set out to do.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Foucault, Americanized for your orals reading consumption! Cliffhangers are resolved, oblique statements cut-and-pasted into a readable narrative. 1960s almost structuralist - discourse 1970s beyond s and h - practice 1975 - Individual as Object - Discipline and Punish - Structuralism 1976 - Individual as Subject - Will to Knowledge - Hermeneutics The afterword material is pretty awesome, strangely lucid.

    This book is simply an authority book to acknowledge Foucault's thought. The authors are companions of the thinker and they gave this philosopher some insights on developing his later discourse.
