Foucault in Iran: Islamic Revolution after the Enlightenment
Behrooz Ghamari-Tabrizi
University of Illinois
Discussants:
Farzaneh Hemmasi, University of Toronto
Mohamad Tavakoli, University of Toronto
Foucault in Iran centers on the significance of Foucault’s writings on the Iranian Revolution and the profound mark it left on his lectures on ethics, spirituality, and fearless speech. This interdisciplinary work will spark a lively debate in its insistence that what informed Foucault’s writing was his conviction that Enlightenment rationality has not closed the gate of unknown possibilities for human societies.

Foucault in Iran is a courageous and thought-provoking invitation to understand the Iranian revolution, and Foucault’s reaction to it, in an original way. A splendid work that goes beyond simple binaries, it has no sympathy for the clichéd vocabulary used by Progressives to describe these events—or to criticize Foucault for his alleged romanticization of the Iranian revolution.
