This volume offers a map of the underlying movements of Foucault's thought. It demonstrates that Foucault is a philosopher of complex spaces, territories and architectures of thought across the range of his work, and includes analyses of lesser-known texts (Magritte, Pierre Riviere, Brisset) that are hardly mentioned in the secondary literature. The primary sense, direction, and force of Foucault's thought is shown to reside in the connections established between a new conception of space-time and freedom, an open system of relations that shows how he thinks the "present" differently, designating this effort the "thought from Outside". This is the freedom of thought in Foucault - a potentially dangerous or joyful yet necessarily endless effort to connect and reconnect with the Outside that is uniquely Foucauldian.
