The Implications of the View that Language is Power: Foucault's account of Power and Identity

Our most recent podcast, "The Implications of the View that Language is Power: Foucault's account of Power and Identity," is Part III in an ongoing series investigating the debate between Orwell's metaphysical account of Language and Human Agency and the emergence of a Nietzschean and Foucaultian account of Language as Power. In this episode, we investigate what Nietzsche and Foucault's Post-Metaphysical account of Language means for how we conceive of Power and Human Agency/Subjectivity/Identity. In this episode we move beyond Orwell's Liberal and Enlightenment account of freedom, language, and politics. Enjoy!
