French Post Structuralist Philosopher
Fresh air is the best way to express my views on this great Post Structuralist Philosopher, Michel Foucault. What he offers that most Philosophers do not, is a path to the future, because he looks forward. Most writers draw from the past and stay there, because they cannot put things in modern terms. Like Mortimer J. Adler, a great scholar, that always looked backwards, because all of his resources were in the past. Who today would read St. Augustine, Immanuel Kant, or Charles Darwin, other than for reference. I love, and respect these thinkers, however, their time has passed. More importantly, new things have come, and times have changed, and these men will not be able to address these new circumstances.
Michel Foucault, more than anyone is able to take the thoughts of thinkers of the past, and work with their patterns to formulate new approaches to human thought, and provide answers to the pressing questions of today.
Pen & Ink Drawing Of Michel Foucault #440Z
Above is my pen & ink drawing of Michel Foucault, wearing a leather jacket. He had many personal struggles but did not let that get him down, because he looked to the future. Unlike most Philosophers, he was clinical in his approach.
