Philosopher’s Circle: Book Talk for August 2nd

 The Archeology of Knowledge by Michel Foucault will be the focus of discussion when the Philosopher’s Circle meets on the first Tuesday of the month, August 2nd, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm at Logos Books,513 Second Street. Here is a “blurb” about Foucault to whet the appetite:

In France, a country that awards its intellectuals the status other countries give their rock stars, Michel Foucault was part of a glittering generation of thinkers, one which also included Sartre, de Beauvoir and Deleuze. One of the great intellectual heroes of the twentieth century, Foucault was a man whose passion and reason were at the service of nearly every progressive cause of his time. From law and order, to mental health, to power and knowledge, he spearheaded public awareness of the dynamics that hold us all in thrall to a few powerful ideologies and interests. Arguably his finest work, Archaeology of Knowledge is a challenging but fantastically rewarding introduction to his ideas.
Come to participate in the discussion, or, simply to listen-in on what the buzz is all about.  See you there!
