Red Library: A Political Education Podcast for Today's Left

Apr 28, 2019

This week, we are kicking off a new series of mini-episodes on that bad boy of French philosophy and history, The Notorious Michel Foucault. Comrade Commissar Don joins me to begin tackling the lecture series Foucault gave in 1975 called Society Must Be Defended. Foucault uses these lectures to explore the relationship between power and social structures, war and society, and tons more!

To help everyone get off to a good start, we have a brief discussion of Foucault's most important theoretical contributions and his relationship to Marxism and politics in general to set up diving into the lectures themselves.
