This is a great exposé of the career of Foucault, I didn't get to know him but this blog has risen my attention on his work and the crisis going in iran..

"Foucault had been sent to Iran by the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera shortly after the “Black Friday” massacre of 4,000 people on September 8, 1978." It is now accepted, in most historical circles, that less than 100 people died on the so-called Black Friday, not 4,000. It is this left-wing propagandist nonsense that assisted the triumph of the Islamist in Iran.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
