AESTHETICS is the second in a three-volume, definitive collection of Michel Foucault's articles, interviews and seminars. It focuses primarily upon the philosophy, literature and other works of the imagination which have informed Foucault's particular engagement with ethics and power and includes Foucault's arresting commentaries on the work of de Sade, Rousseau, Marx, Nietzsche, Roussel and Boulez. 'A magnificent, essential compendium, in the absence of which the man, the thinker and his thought would have been amputated, unfinished and incompletely understood' -- Liberation

About the Author:

Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was one of the most important and influential thinkers of the twentieth century. Books by Foucault in Penguin include The History of Sexuality (3 vols) and Discipline and Punish. Paul Rabinow is Professor of Anthropologyat the University of California at Berkeley. He is the author of The Foucault Reader, published by Penguin.

From Library Journal:

The second of three volumes (following Ethics: Subjectivity and Truth, LJ 3/15/97) to be excerpted from the Gallimard collection of Foucault's oeuvre, this work provides American readers with diverse lectures, literary and film reviews, and interviews concerning language, literature, authorship, imagination, psychology, order, and history. At midpoint in the volume, the lecture "What is an author?" fairly describes the project of this series: "Writing unfolds like a game that invariably goes beyond its own rules and transgresses its limits." Each of these pieces is thoroughly self-contained but significant to a greater understanding of both its subject and its author. Wittily, one piece included here is Foucault's pseudonymously authored biographical dictionary entry on himself. For all scholars and many lay readers familiar with Foucault.?Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.
