Available in English for the first time, the ninth volume in Foucault's groundbreaking series of lectures gets to the heart of his views on truthThe 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 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.
