Catherine Lopez 4/3/19 PHI 326 Professor Pittman Reading Log Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, historian of ideas, social theorist, and literary critic. In his book “DISCIPLINE AND PUNISH” Foucault focuses on punishment, it’s practice that surround the punishment and its frame. He opens with the punishment, torture, execution of Damien during 1787. The basic argument is there is no motivation to the betterment for that soul but to subject as much pain as possible. Foucault contrast that with a document relating to a French juvenile prison 80 years later. What becomes clear about this document is the lives of these children was dehumanizing. Dehumanizing in the sense that it takes away the opportunity to become motivated or to have initiative. Both the execution and the juvenile prison are modes of punishment. He demonstrates, using these punishments, the foundationally shift of the pain inflicting on the physical body as retribution to a penalty addressed to the soul.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
