Hubert L. Dreyfus and Paul Rabinow. Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism· and Hermeneutics

Hubert L. Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism· and Hermeneutics. In this book we discuss Foucault's writings chronologically to show how he has sought to refine his tools of analysis and to sharpen his critical insight into modem society and its discontents. We also attempt to place Foucault's thought among other thinkers with whom his approach has common themes. Foucault has shown at length that official biographies and current received opinions of top intellectuals do not carry any transparent truth.

This book, which Foucault himself has judged accurate, is the first to provide a sustained, coherent analysis .

Michel Foucault - Hubert L. Dreyfus. The University of Chicago Press, Chicago 60637. The second title of our book was Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism and Hermeneutics. At this stage we argued that while strictly speaking Foucault had not been a structuralist, he thought that structuralism was the most advanced position in the human sciences. He, however, was not practicing the human sciences; he was analyzing discourse as an autonomous realm from the outside.

First I should state my position, or lack thereof.
I am not a scholar, not an academic, not a student of philosophy. I am just a person who has an interest and desire to understand more about life and the ways of knowing it.
As such, I was apprehensive about venturing into Foucault - having only kindergarten knowledge of post-structuralism - fearing any book (whatever its claims) would either be a condescending simplification ("Beginners guide to -" , "- for dummies") or wall of esoteric semantics and impenetrable gibberish.
But to my amazement this book couldn't have been more useful or appropriate.

The book managed to explain the overriding project of Foucault and as well explain in clear language what the problems and solutions Foucault offered (keep in mind my position as a stranger to Foucault, I cannot speak for the _accuracy_ of the text, only whether or not it manages to explain the theories they posit). The true mark of genius is how the book know exactly when to move forward and when to stop and elaborate. Whenever I found myself confused, the text would somehow become aware of this and reiterate the problem in different terms.

Moving at a comfortable pace through most of Foucaults key concepts, it seems to give a good foundation for further investigation. I'll repeat: It's neither a dummies guide nor a academic secret code. In fact, I'm hard pressed to place the book in a category.
Instead I'll say that the book was a Godsend for someone like me wanting to know more about Foucault and finding the dummies-guide's too simplistic.
(Though, perhaps, the beginners and dummies guide gave me a foundation more required that I am aware of. Inevitably, however - to state a truism - these dummies-guide's are not representing the actual theories, but rather a separate gestalt of the theories, and ultimately a separate and less interesting theory)

The text manages to give a representation - without falling to blind worship - of Foucault's "archaeology"; First presenting it and later putting it to the test (so to speak) makes this a both a primer in Foucault and a philosophical work in its own right.
Someone told me this about the book before I bought it, and it is a hard concept to explain, and it took me actually reading the book to understand it myself... Without lacking either - or, rather, being fully planted in both - it walks that fine line between introduction and commentary of Foucault.

Whether or not Deryfus and Rainbow actually present Foucault's full body or work I cannot know, having only read this book. For all I know there are theories and ideas missing from this primer - I have no way of knowing - but as a primer, even presenting a small portions of the ideas, there is enough in this text to open your eyes and change some of your thinking.

Having read most of Foucault and some of the jargon-laced incoherence that passes for scholarship on his work, I'd say this is the clearest, most coherent text you will find on Foucault. Dreyfus is a great explainer and clarifier of other philosophers (if he can rescue Heidegger from the being-in-the-swamp of his own verbiage, he can rescue anyone), and in this case, he makes Foucault clearer than I thought possible. Also, Dreyfus knew Foucault at Berkeley and was invited by Foucault to lecture in France, so I'm sure this personal connection gave him additional insight into Foucault's project.

I have never been a fan of Foucault or the cult that has sprung up around him in seemingly every corner of the academic world, but Dreyfus and Rabinow at least convinced me that Foucault had something to say and explained what that was more clearly than Foucault ever managed to himself. I highly recommend this book, but it would help to have some background in philosophy (i.e. Kant) before you read it -- probably not required, but it would be helpful.

I haven't yet read all of this book but I think this book is very useful and helpful to understand the thought of Foucault that is hard to understand. There are many authers' insightful consideration about Foucault's thought and they explain it chronologically. So readers of this book can easily follow the development process of Foucault's thought. Although readers must have the knowledge of European philosophy, I recommend this book for all readers who want to know the overall thought of Foucault.
Cordanius
Good and fair discourse explaining Foucault's thinking.
Gindian
This is simply the best introduction to the philosophy of Foucault and its ongoing significance.

I was pushed to write this on the occasion of Hubert L. Dreyfus' passing two days ago on April 22, 2017. When you're reading a thinker as complex as Michel Foucault, great secondary sources are a must, more so when you're starting out. For me, the first two secondary sources that were informative were James Bernauer's Force of Flight and Paul Rabinow and Hubert Dreyfus' Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism and Hermeneutics. The latter was particularly important. Here were two writers who had actually known Michel Foucault during his short time at Berkeley and were the among the first in the States to study his ideas in depth in their work. Furthermore, they wrote the work with Foucault's own input (though many have since indicated that he was being polite rather than endorsing their interpretation per se).. Reading the study was like reading Foucault's own explanation of his views, or so I believed then as a beginner. I would not have been able to get through it without their help. In the years since I read those (mid-late 2000's), Foucault-related literature has exploded. With the release of Foucault's public seminars at the College de France and increased secondary literature on both them and untranslated writings in his complete Dits et Ecrits, we now have a more complete and nuanced picture of Foucault's thought beyond the usual two dimensional portrait we have of a thinker obsessed with closed power systems and super-imposed discursive relations. Many of the ideas and theories set out in Dreyfus and Rabinow's influential study have since been corrected. Their schematic periodization of Foucault between archaeology, genealogy and the self has since collapsed when reading lectures incorporating all three ideas and tying into the published books. Yet for all of the flaws and shortcomings of the interpretation, it still remains an incredibly useful and clear exposition of Foucault's thought. It was among the first of its kind and still remains useful many readers of Foucault even today. For that it, it should still be remembered and respected.
