Main Article Content
In this essay I highlight the complexity of Foucaultâ€™s thought through an examination of the diverse philosophical traditionsâ€”from Kant, to Nietzsche, to Foucaultâ€™s phenomenological lineage via CavaillÃ¨s and Canguilhemâ€”that influence his own distinctive project. In addition, I identify key Foucauldian concepts worthy of continued reflection and offer, as my own contribution to the dialogue, various musical analogies as hermeneutical and analytical â€œtoolsâ€ that (1) illuminate and clarify Foucaultâ€™s ideas and (2) provide a coherent way to understand episteme change.Â Â
