Marshall, James D.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v20 n1 p75-91 Jan 2001
Argues for a Foucauldean position on the self to extend critical theory. Discusses several philosophical accounts of the self, including the work of such philosophers as Descartes, Hume, Locke, Rousseau, Schopenhauer, Wittgenstein, and Nietzsche. Concludes that Foucault's philosophy provides a powerful critical conception of the self for critical thinking within the liberal tradition. (KS)
