1. Course Description

This course is designed to examine the body of work that marks Michel Foucault’s last years (1981-1984) in the context of the earlier themata of his career in order to examine that concentration upon the self as aesthetic construction and the philosophical self’s construction of itself as “truthteller”. This examination is designed as a mirror in which the seminar participants are invited to consider their own orientation to themselves as Christian person, scholar and philosopher/theologian.

  3. To use the sustained encounter with the central themes of Foucault’s philosophy to         examine its relevance as challenge and resource to Christian scholars and scholarship in the context of a 15-25 page essay.
