Will to Power (Foucault)

PHILOS 4 – Essay Prompt Write a persuasive/argument essay addressing the following debate question: Enlightenment Rationality: “Path to Truth” (Descartes) or “Will to Power” (Foucault)? What is the relationship between knowledge and power in the social sciences? Briefly explain each philosopher’s answer to knowledge/power relation question. Compare and contrast their positions; identify the key point(s) of conflict. State and craft your thesis, e.g. “In this paper I will argue for Descartes’s position, against Foucault’s position…” and specify your reason/s and criteria for judgment. Use the film, “One Flew Over the Coo Coo’s Nest” or “Kinsey” to illustrate & support your thesis. (Other recommendations will be considered, including science fiction and games.) Use your own educational experience to illustrate and support your thesis. Hence, you might use these question for guidance: What is education for? How are these educational ends realized in practice? What is the objective truth about your mind/intelligence/knowledge? Explain and critique the method of determining your g.p.a. Is it objective? How has schooling/grading shaped/determined your identity? Notes: Focus on Foucault’s argument on the contingent, historically constructed nature of “knowledge/power relations” (DP, 22-30). Use the concept of “paradigm-shift” to explore Decartes’ modern position in debate with Foucault’s post-modern position. For Foucault, “knowledge/power” relations play out differently in different contexts/caves, all of which share the same endgame, the production of truth for winning power contests. For Descartes, truth is discovered, not produced; therefore, he stands for the paradigm genuinely “outside the cave,” the scientific method. Grading Criteria: Do you understand what you are writing? Do you have a good conceptual grasp of at least one of the key ideas? Is there evidence of your critical thinking practice at work, and your progress? Can you make an argument which includes consideration and refutation of your opposition’s best argument? Persuasive quality writing will be valued over generic reports for the teacher. Skillful, but limited, use of key ideas and/or quotes from the text will be valued. Think of this as a test of whether you can convey your understanding of these two competing positions rather than a freeform, stream of consciousness opinion paper. Evidence of utilization of secondary texts research skills will not be valued, and when used, must be properly sited. Coherence & thematic focus: A thorough exploration of a particular scene in a movie and your individual educational example will be valued over a spattering of miscellaneous examples and other kinds of “canned” answers, the kind you can buy online.
