From Open Culture:
Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was an enormously influential French philosopher who wrote, among other things, historical analyses of psychiatry, medicine, the prison system, and the function of sexuality in social organizations. He spent some time during the last years of his life at UC Berkeley, delivering several lectures in English. And happily they were recorded for posterity:
  • Four Lectures on Truth and Subjectivity (1980)
  • Six Lectures on Discourse and Truth (1983)
  • Three Lectures on “The Culture of the Self” (1983)
These last lectures are also available on YouTube (in audio format) [Read More]
