  Michel Foucault   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-16)
There he met Daniel Defert, with whom he lived in non-monogamous partnership for the rest of his life, at least when he was in France.
In 1961 he earned his doctorate by submitting two theses (as is customary in France): a 'major' thesis entitled Folie et déraison: Histoire de la folie à l'âge classique and a 'secondary' thesis which involved a translation and commentary on Kant's Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View.
Following Defert's military posting to Tunisia, Foucault next moved to a position at the University of Tunis in 1965.

Defert's political activism exercised a major influence on Foucault's development.
It is a comparative study of the development of economics, the natural sciences and linguistics in the 18th and 19th centuries and can be described as the first postmodern history of ideas.
Foucault joined Defert in Tunisia from 1966 to 1968 when the latter went there to fulfill his volunteer service requirements.

There he met Daniel Defert, with whom he lived in non-monogamous partnership for the rest of his life.
Foucault's tenure at Vincennes was short-lived, as in 1970 Foucault was elected to France's most prestigious academic body, the Collège de France as Professor of the History of Systems of Thought.
His political involvement now increased, Defert having joined the ultra-Maoist Gauche Proletarienne (GP), with whom Foucault became very loosely associated.

In this he argued that “madness” as we know it, and the scrupulous and troubled distinctions we make between it and “sanity,” is a hallmark invention of the Age of Reason.
Defert’s political activism would exercise a major influence on Foucault’s development.
When Daniel Defert went to Tunisia to fulfill his volunteer service requirements, Foucault followed him, and spent 1966-1968 teaching there.

Although a sociologist, Defert was appalled by the behavior of doctors as his intimate companion, Michel Foucault, died of AIDS.
Defert began informing himself in medical libraries and creating for AIDS the kinds of information groups of specialists and civic groups that Foucault and he had established around prisons, psychiatric hospitals, and abortion rights.
Defert brought together doctors, lawyers, and ethicists to create AIDES, the largest and most active private association concerned with AIDS in France.

Otherwise, he treats Foucault's homosexuality as if it were FDR's polio -- a handicap which our hero, in his quest for greatness, managed to overcome (until the end, that is, when it brought him into final, unmerited collision with HIV-disease).
An inattentive reader might be pardoned for concluding from Eribon's exposition that after Foucault and Defert became lovers in late 1960 Foucault never had sex with anyone else ever again.
And yet much of the impetus for Foucault's late work on pratiques de soi came from insights into the transformative potential of sex which he gained from his experiences in the bathhouses and S/M clubs of New York and San Francisco.

Defert responded that "Foucault inserted the practice of confession within a problematic of power.
Miller argues: "To have taken AIDS as a 'limit-experience,' it seemed to me, would have involved engaging in potentially suicidal acts of passion with consenting partners, most of them likely to be infected already; deliberately throwing caution to the wind, Foucault and these men were wagering their lives together" (p.

From the late sixties, and starting with a homage to Daniel Cohn-Bendit after the events of May 1968, Genet became more politically active.
Genet also supported Angela Davis and George Jackson, as well as Michel Foucault and Daniel Defert's Prison Information Group.
He worked with Foucault and Sartre to protest police brutality against Algerians in Paris, a pervasive problem persistant since the Algerian War of Independence, when beaten bodies were to be found floating in the Seine.

Macey's (Lacan in Contexts)revealing, careful bigraphy, whichtraces Foucault's constantly evolving thought against the backdrop of his political activism and travels, draws on interviews with friends and colleagues and on the cooperation of Foucault's former lover, Daniel Defert.
Foucault shared what he called a ``passion'' with Daniel Defert, his companion from 1963 on--and the source of much of the information here.
While the philosopher believed that his true self was in his works, he effaced that self with an objective style, deflecting attention away from himself and universalizing his private preoccupations.

There's no discussion in the biographical section of the fact that growing up queer in Catholic France (and its attendant notions of psychological propriety) might have fostered his interests in language, power, and madness.
There's no discussion of his relationship with Roland Barthes, although Daniel Defert, his more commonly recognized lover, is mentioned.
Only the briefest mention is made of how Foucault's philosophy was played out through his involvement with S/M. All three volumes of History of Sexuality receive only 15 pages of consideration, while the other major works receive around 30 pages apiece.

Daniel Defert, for one, sharply disputes the general impression left by Hervé Guibert, dismissing his novel as a vicious fantasy.
Sstill, there seems little doubt that Foucalt on his last visit to San Francisco was preoccupied with AIDS, and by his own possible death from it -- as Defert himself stresses.
"He took AIDS very seriously," says Defert: "When he went to San Francisco for the last time, he took it as a limit-experience."

Reducing the mans work detracts from the oeuvre and lessens the biographical project.
We learn virtually nothing about Foucault's relations with the two important romantic interests of his life, the young composer Jean Barraque, with whom he had a "tempestuous and passionate relationship" (Eribon, 1991: 65) and with the sociologist Daniel Defert, whom he considered for the last 25 years of his life.
According to Eribon, the flight of Foucault's sexual experience ranged from guilty to neurotic.

Such a scrambling of locations brings a repositioning of cultural "theory"-a contested term I use to denote simply any developed comparative knowledge about the histories and forms of collective life.
This postcolonial confusion (as Daniel Defert has called it) involves a new marking of "the West" as a site of ongoing power and contestation, of centrality and dispersal.
Theory, a product long associated with Western discursive spaces-a status that permitted it to speak confidently of "human" history, culture, psyche, etc.-now is marked by specific historical centers and horizons.

In the Czech Republic, the process of capitalist reconstruction went hand in hand with the drive, led by former dissidents Vaclav Benda and Daniel Kroupa, to reveal the names of former secret police agents, and screen state officials with regard to their past.
Supply and demand will determine what gets defined as “accident” and what is its worth.
This is not necessarily what happens in actuality, but this is the “governmentality” behind its introduction, and this is why I say that monetarism is a technology of government (Ewald 1991; Defert 1991).
