Book Subjectivity & Truth

Subjectivity & Truth
By:Tina Besley,Michael A. Peters
Published on 2007 by Peter Lang

This book focuses on Foucault’s later work and his (re)turn to ‘the hermeneutics of the subject’, exploring the implications of his thinking for education, pedagogy, and related disciplines. What and who is the subject of education and what are the forms of self-constitution? Chapters investigate Foucault’s notion of ‘the culture of self’ in relation to questions concerning truth (parrhesia or free speech) and subjectivity, especially with reference to the literary genres of confession and biography, and the contemporary political forms of individualization (governmentality).
