A brief survey of the common cultural and theoretical background of French philosophy in the twentieth century (through vitalism, structuralism, phenomenology, existentialism, psychoanalysis and Marxism) to contextualise the writings of Foucault and Deleuze. We will examine Foucault's writings on prisons and disciplinary power, the history of sexuality and epistemology and Deleuze's work on Nietzsche, Sacher von Masoch, as well as his collaborative writing with Felix Guattari.
