Philosophy and Social Criticism 31 (5-6):573-584 (2005)
|Abstract||Foucault never presented a systematic history of tragedy, but reflections on the relationship between tragedy and the will to truth are scattered throughout his writings. Given the Nietzschean inspiration of his work, this is not surprising. Yet Foucault rarely referenced The Birth of Tragedy, preferring to draw on Nietzsche’s later genealogical writings. In this paper I highlight the importance of The Birth of Tragedy for understanding Foucault’s entire corpus, suggesting that it can be read as a sustained consideration on the political significance of the madness of Orestes from Aeschylus to Racine|
