Still thinking differently: Foucault twenty years on
Lloyd and Thacker explore the works of Foucault twenty years after his death, thinking about how his significant writings have been commemorated, and suggesting that there has possibly been a decline in the assumptions that form the basis of poststructural and postmodern thought, but that his works continue to be significant. The article suggests that contemporary thought on cultural geography has been substantially influenced by Foucault’s work on space, knowledge, and power, as have art history and postcolonial thought. They explore the implications of Foucault’s comments in the interview with Mort and Peters recorded in this volume, situating them in his wider canon and then suggests the relationship of these particular ideas to the works of Judith Butler.
