Introduction to M. Foucault and G. Preti's <i>A conversation</i>
AbstractThis brief introduction presents the historical setting of the debate that took place between Michel Foucault and Giulio Preti in the early 1970s. It expounds some elements of the theoretical background of the debate, mainly focusing on Preti’s philosophy. It attempts to explain the main philosophical tenets that led Preti to confront some of Foucault’s positions, and tries to suggest some possible paths for reconciling the ideas exposed by the two authors.
