Historical critique of philosophical universalism through Foucault and Rorty

thesis
posted on 2002-01-01, 00:00 authored by Douglas Vivian. Boyle
This thesis examines the critiques of modern philosophy by Foucault and Rorty, which use genealogical and philosophical arguments against the notion of universal truths being fundamental to knowledge. They promote the idea of the autonomy of the self, and the use of discourse to generate pragmatic action within society.
