Maurice Blanchot: The Thought from Outside and Michel Foucault as I Imagine Him

In these essays two of the most important French thinkers of our time reflect on each other's work. In so doing, Maurice Blanchot the novelist/essayist and Michel Foucault the philosopher develop a new perspective on the relationship between subjectivity, fiction, and the will to truth. The two texts present meditations on writing, language, and representation which question the status of the author/subject and explore the notion of a "neutral" voice that arises from the realm of the "outside."
