Abstract

'The truth will set you free' is a maxim central to both theories and practices of resistance. Nonetheless, it is a claim that has come under fire from an array of critical perspectives in the second half of the 20th century. Iain MacKenzie's monograph lays the focus on the challenges to the category of truth formulated by poststructuralists such as Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze and post-foundationalism as represented by Alain Badiou. He argues that a critically oriented version of poststructuralism provides both an understanding of the deeply entwined nature of truth and power and a compelling account of the creative practices that may sustain resistance.
