There is now a considerable literature on Michel Foucaultbut this is the first monograph which explicitly addresses his influence and impact upon education. Personal autonomy has been seen as a major aim, if not the aim of liberal education. But if Foucault is correct that personal autonomy and the notion of the autonomous person are myths, then the pursuit of such an aim by educationalists is misguided. The author develops this critique of personal autonomy and liberal education from the writings of Foucault, and also considers Foucault’s own educational practices. The author, James Marshall, who lives in New Zealand, has already written several articles for academic journals on Foucault.
