Do not ask who I am . . .
I give Foucault the first word: ‘Do not ask who I am and do not
ask me to remain the same . . . Let us leave it to our bureaucrats and
our police to see that our papers are in order’ (AK, 17).
He has his wish, since quite different readings of his life are
supported by the known facts. One version of his story is a standard
one of progressive academic success:
The son of a prominent provincial family, his father a successful
doctor, Paul-Michel Foucault was a brilliant student, a star even, at
the prestigious École Normale Supérieure. His academic and
political connections enabled him to avoid the high-school teaching
usually expected in France of those with philosophical academic
ambitions. Instead, he spent several Wanderjahren in Sweden,
Poland, and Germany, while finishing his dissertation, which was
sponsored by one of the most powerful professors at the Sorbonne
and, once published, gained favourable reviews from leading
intellectuals. In the course of the next eight years he moved easily
through a series of professorships. His 1966 book, Les mots et les
choses, was an academic bestseller that made him the leading
candidate to succeed Sartre as the French ‘master-thinker’. A few
years later, he won election to the super-elite Collège de France
(following Bergson and Merleau-Ponty), which put him at the
pinnacle of the French academic world and relieved him of ordinary
teaching obligations. From then on, he travelled the world (to Japan,
Brazil, California, among other countries) lecturing to packed halls,
increasingly engaged in high-profile political actions, and still
managing to write brilliant books on crime and sex that have made
him a major figure in every humanistic and social scientific
discipline. By the time he died, in 1984, he had already been the
subject of dozens of books, and his posthumous fame has only
increased.
