Noelle Kocot’s Favorite Things


Author Noelle Kocot shares with us five things/people/places that interest her right now, like supermarket fliers and Michael Foucault:

I am also very interested in the writings of Michel Foucault—I don’t think he is crazy at all, and I think his ideas really fit the way things are from a social perspective. Right now, Madness and Civilization, an early book, is important to me, and I love it how he says that in this time period, madness cannot talk with reason anymore: ‘All that madness can say of itself is merely reason, though it is itself the negation of reason.’
