Agreed, it wasn't a good read and left me with nothing gained. 6 hours ago, Dirty_habiT said: I just looked over Foucault's wiki page. He seems to be a French Philosopher but without reading about him a lot more deeply I wouldn't know his shortcomings or merits. Would you care to expand more on what you said? This thread, again, doesn't have to be about music. Oh oh oh and.... PAGE 2!!! Read "Discipline & Punish" after seeing people quote him from this book. The book started off pretty intense with a blow by blow description of a person being tortured to death in the late 1700's. Having their flesh torn in multiple points, then pouring hot lead and oil into the wounds, and finally quartering the guy which the original 4 horses failed at, so they tried using 2 more, when those horses were starting to fall out from exhaustion the executioner finally had to cut the guys legs down to the bone (while he was still conscious) to successfully finish quartering the prisoner with 6 horses total. From there, it was a brief history of criminal justice leading up until the late 1800's/Early 20th century methods. Not sure if any of it was useful or insightful, but at least I'm no longer curious. Moved on to some modern non-fiction for now, best sellers to get that taste out of my mouth. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
