The radio program, Philosopher’s Zone, of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), has produced a special episode to mark the 50th anniversary of Michel Foucault’s Madness and Civilization. As described on the program’s website:
Exactly fifty years ago, a 33-year-old Frenchman named Michel Foucault completed what would become one of the most influential works on the history of psychiatry: Madness and Civilization: A history of insanity in the age of reason. The book made a philosophical star of its author and changed our view of madness.
