Parrhesia: a journal of critical philosophy

http://www.parrhesiajournal.org/

editors: Matthew Sharpe, Alex Murray, Jon Roffe

Michel Foucault’s last works tell us that parrhesia is the act of
fearlessly speaking the truth.To engage in parrhesia is never, however, a
‘neutral’ act. Parrhesia simultaneously incorporates aesthetic and
ethical dimensions. The parrhesiast is someone whose fidelity to the truth
becomes the pivot of a process of self-transformation.
