Relevancia de Foucault para la Psicología

Juan Pastor

Universidad de Oviedo

En este artículo trataremos de acercarnos a uno de los pensadores más notables e influyentes del pasado siglo: Michel Foucault, filósofo, psicólogo y profesor universitario. Michel Foucault es un personaje ciertamente poliédrico: historiador (de la locura, de la clínica, de la prisión, de la sexualidad), arqueólogo (del saber), analista (del discurso y de las relaciones de poder), psicólogo interesado en la genealogía de la subjetividad moderna y filósofo (del poder y del sujeto). El objetivo de este artículo es presentar algunas claves para utilizar la obra de Michel Foucault para una problematización de la Psicología.

Foucault’s relevance for Psychology. In this article, we will attempt to address one of the most outstanding and influential thinkers of the past century: Michel Foucault, Philosopher, Psychologist, and above all (university) Professor. Michel Foucault is certainly versatile: Historian (of madness, clinical practice, imprisonment and sexuality), Archaeologist (of knowledge), Analyst (of discourse and power relations), Psychologist (genealogy of subjectivity) and Philosopher (of power and the subject). With this article, we eventually expect to offer some clues to be able to use the work of Michel Foucault for the problematization of Psychology.
