This is a really good short overview of Foucault’s work. Most of these kinds of animations are usually fairly dubious portrayals of his work but this one is a refreshing departure from the norm. In particular, I liked the author’s debunking of the monotonously repeated outrage at Foucault’s alleged relativism concerning the truth. This animation nicely brands this ‘critique’ as ‘fake news’.
If he were still alive, what would philosopher Michel Foucault make of the world today? He’d be sounding the alarm, says Professor Angie Hobbs, Professor of Public Understanding of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield.
