Sep. 11 "Knowledge, Power and Prisons: The Strength and Limitations of Foucault's Critique"

Professor Ria Jenkins
(Philosophy, St, Thomas More College)

What is the connection between knowledge and power?  Foucault famously states that knowledge and power "directly imply" one another, and he uses this belief as a basis for his critical analysis of prisons. This talk will explore not just the meaning of this connection for Foucault, but also its strengths and limitations.
