Foucault, sexuality, and an epistemico-ontological ground for resistance
Karademir, Aret; Bağçe, Samet; Department of Philosophy (2009)
Michel Foucault characterizes power as ubiquitous and productive in the sense that there is no power-free truth, subject, and knowledge. Moreover, he studies the historical conditions of truth and subject to have an existence in a way that he historicizes them rather than delineating truth as corresponding to reality and subject as a self-subsistent and ahistorical substance. In this respect, his anti-essentialist account of power, truth, and subject is criticized on the account that he excludes the possibi...

Çokay Nebioğlu, Rahime; Korkut Naykı, Nil; Department of English Literature (2018)
The turn of the new millennium has seen the rise of late capitalism and witnessed a radical change in the structure of the contemporary world, which initiated a new social formation that is seemingly more flexible and liberating yet indeed more controlling.

As the fıfth, I tried to relate the demarcation problem to ethics, concepts and...
Heidegger and Foucault: On the Relation Between the Anxiety-Engendering-Truth and Being-Towards-Freedom
Karademir, Aret (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-08-01)
In his very last, now famous, interview, Michel Foucault states that his philosophical thought was shaped by his reading of Heidegger, even though he does not specify what aspects of Heidegger's philosophy inspired him in the first place. However, his last interview is not the only place where Foucault refers to Heidegger as his intellectual guide. In his 1981/1982 lecture course, The Hermeneutics of the Subject, Foucault confesses that the way Heidegger conceptualized the relationship between subject and t...
