The Spectacle of the Scaffold, Paperback

The Spectacle of the Scaffold Paperback

Part of the Penguin Great Ideas series



Foucault's writings on power and control in social institutions have made him one of the modern era's most influential thinkers.

Here he argues that punishment has gone from being mere spectacle to becoming an instrument of systematic domination over individuals in society - not just of our bodies, but our souls.

Throughout history, some books have changed the world.

They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other.

They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution.

They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted.

They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
