PHILOSOPHY – Michel Foucault
The School of Life
Michel Foucault was a philosophical historian who questioned many of our assumptions about how much better the world is today compared with the past. When he looked at the treatment of the mad, at the medical profession and at sexuality, he didn’t see the progress that’s routinely assumed.
