Description - Foucault and Social Dialogue by Chris Falzon
Foucault and Social Dialogue: Beyond Fragmentation offers a fascinating introduction to Foucault's political and ethical thought. Christoper Falzon questions the commonly held view that Foucault's work provides no firm basis for ethical or political thought. With clarity and insight, he argues that we should move away from such dead-end debates and turn to the model of social dialogue that is implicit in Foucault's work. Christopher Falzon also provides a rethinking of the important debate between Habermas and Foucault and shows how Foucault effectively challenges Habermas' position. Throughout, Foucault and Social Dialogue establishes clear links with contemporary debates in continental philosophy and the full significance of Foucault's ethical and political theory is brought out. It will interest students of Foucault and all those concerned with social, critical and political theory.
