    From briefly reading wikipedia, he seems ENFj (or maybe INFp).

    INFP seems likely from VI
    Well I am back. How's everyone? Don't have as much time now, but glad to see some of the old gang are still here.

    i'm tempted to say ENTj, but ENTp or ENFj seem plausible too.

    foucault is on the left.
    foucault v. chomsky debate (pt. 1)

    yes, this contrast is funny. at times, Foucault seems impatient when Chomsky pauses to think or, overall, by his drier, less emphatic style. i think the two of these guys would be unlikely friends.

    He always struck me as Tj VI wise. The first impression, years ago, was ENTj, but his writings does not seem to be particularly Te-centered.

    read "Criticisms..." in the wikipedia article (if you haven't already)
    Yeah; I remember 2 years ago glancing at his books for 3-4 hours at the university philosophy library, and then trying to find some information on their accuracy - since most of what he said looked like it was made ad-hoc. This is also why I said his views don't really seem to rely on Te much.

    No, they don't, I think he's a Ti type. Alpha NT ..though Socionics.-wise I cannot explain his interest in the construction of power and sexuality through social discourses. As such Quadra values are probably insignificant under the postructuralist direction of his time.

    Yeah, I think you're right. Typical Alpha NT space alien doing the "What is...knowledge? What is...sexuality? What is...navel gazing? What are the true inequalities of power when a man disappears this far up his own ass?" schtick.

    Ti-ILE. causal-determinist is pretty clear from his writings, but there's more variability and open-endedness than what you get with someone like heidegger (Ti-LSI).

    I think alpha values are pretty clear in light of how easily (and stereotypically) an Se-valuer (i.e. nietzsche) could situate themselves in the topics he explores.

    @Tallmo @Delilah Let's revive this!

    Okay so Tallmo says LIE, I say Gamma/Beta logical with SLE as my first choice. Is anybody else familiar with his work?

    I changed my mind. I think alpha NT. Maybe ILE

    Edit: creative subtype

    He cant be a sensor. There is absolutly no use for it in that special field. Base sensing is impossible

    I knew Focault was ENTp and Chomsky INFp.

    He worked on punishment system, police and people that went against law. How they reply to external system of punishment etc.
    A phrase that he said sounds like 'It's not important to know who are you, because the life is basically change yourself and create yourself'. SOmething ike that I can't remember exactly.

    Foucault is sort of a typical example of a continental philosopher / social theorist whose philosophy is as much sociopolitical as it is structural. I'll stand by the EIE typing. Again from Wikipedia:

    Foucault's first biographer, Didier Eribon, described the philosopher as "a complex, many-sided character", and that "under one mask there is always another".

    He has written a lot about the ways western societies discipline our bodies: what quadra, function or type does that point to? I believe that his most influential body of work revolves around this theme.
