My Beautiful Fossils

Posted: July 3, 2011 in Foucault, Scribbling On Foucault's Walls

This is a cartoon featuring images of (l-r)  Levi Strauss, Jacques Lacan, Michel Foucault and Roland Barthes.

My beautiful fossils.

It might be Zeeland, Maker, Halperin, Simpson.

‘It is the nature of aphoristic thinking to be always in a state of concluding; a bid to have the final word is inherent in all powerful phrase-making’. – Susan Sontag on Roland Barthes


Their time is up.

Foucault’s daughter is going to have the final word.

    I would like to start a business selling “Suck My Repressive Hypothesis” tees, corsets, and ball caps.

    Interested? Or are you already planning a line of strap ons and other sex toys (make that, devices) under the Foucault’s Daughter brand?

    • Foucault’s Daughter is a bit shy and doesn’t really do aggressive marketing!

      But I like the idea of a t shirt of some sort. Maybe even just ‘Foucault’s Daughter’ on the tee.

        Of course not… she takes after you. 😉

        As I believe I’ve told you before, I think FD is a lovely construction… and hook…

        Did you know that someone once referred to Paglia as Nietzsche in Furs?

    Nice Sontag quote, btw.
