Philosopher
    (October 15, 1926-June 26, 1984)
    Wrote 'The History of Sexuality' (In three volumes), 'Madness and Civilization,' 'The Birth of the Clinic' and 'The Archaeology of Knowledge'
    His name looks like it should be pronounced 'Fo-calt,' but is read as 'Foo-co.'
    He believed that a people were constructed by their society (i.e. who you are is entirely dependant on where you are).
    He was one of the founders of the post modern movement.
    He never presented his arguments.
    Someone out there decided to make a Foucalt action figure ( www.theory.org.uk/act-faq.htm ).
    He suffered from depression.
    His earliest childhood memory was witnessing the assassination of Austrian Chancellor Dollfus.
    After the news of Joseph Stalin's mad purges reached France, he left the communist party.
    He said: 'I think that before 1968, at least in France, you had to be as a philosopher a Marxist, or a phenomenologist, or a structuralist, and I adhered to none of these dogmas.'
    He was HIV positive and died from AIDS related illness.
    He did not attempt to hide his homosexuality.
