The Courage of Truth

The Courage of Truth

Picador USA | May 8, 2012 | 384 pages

The course given by Michel Foucault from February to March 1984, under the title The Courage of Truth, was his last at the College de France. The previous year, his lectures investigated the function of "truth telling" in politics in order to establish courage and conviction as ethical conditions for democracy irreducible to the formal rules of consensus. In this volume, he continues and radicalizes the analyses he had begun. Foucault died only two months after completing these lectures, but his discourse on what it means to speak truth to power serves as a profound conclusion to his life's work.
