Time 1981 - France's Philosopher of PowerIn 1981 Foucault was profiled in Time magazine – Otto Friedrich with Sandra Burton, “France’s Philosopher of Power”, Time, November 16 1981, pp. 58-9. I’d seen a few references to this piece before, such as in Mark Kelly’s guide to the first volume of the History of Sexuality, so made an effort to find a copy. It took a little while, not least because the pagination is different in the various editions of Time – I’ve seen it referenced to pp. 92-4 and 147-8. Inter-library loan requests led to replies the pages were wrong and therefore it didn’t exist. I did eventually get a copy, only to discover there is a version freely available online here. An interesting piece, much familiar, but a few little things of historical interest.
