Structuralism and post-structuralism, and Foucault's position, need clarification... watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have contradictory lecture notes, somewhere it is written that Foucault is a structuralist elsewhere that he is a post-structuralist. Can someone please dumb down these notions for me so I can understand the difference?

    Would be good to be contextualised with regards to l'histoire de la sexualite' (the history of sexuality)

    Thanks in advance
