Lectures on the Will to Know reminds us that Michel Foucault's work only ever had one object: truth.
Here, he builds on his earlier work, Discipline and Punish, to explore the relationship between tragedy, conflict, and truth-telling.
He also explores the different forms of truth-telling, and their relation to power and the law.
The publication of Lectures on the Will to Know marks a milestone in Foucault's reception, and it will no longer be possible to read him in the same way as before.
