Michel Foucault

We confess confundid@s or perplexed. And is that Emma transports us to an asylum but at the same time shows us the vision of society, the paradoxical reality, facts and attitudes of automated until madness, until the alienation, human beings, man and women and speaks to us: I’m for you what I was once desocuparon circular spaces of your madness. But you know very well now, I am my own circular space that is your madness. But what madness? According to Michel Foucault’s thinking, those who have power are what define it is normal and that it is not. Any society can define insanity in such a way that certain people fall into that category and are isolated. But power not only determines normalcy and madness, but also knowledge. Many times it has been said that knowledge is power; but Foucault asserts that in the same way the power produces knowledge.

So that those who have power are those that determine what is normal, what is fair and what is true. We have alternatives: I say things such as, I say things as I see them or I say things that I decide to (as the history of the three umpieres). As well says Guinness: the first referee represents the traditional point of view about the truth: something objective, independent of the mind of the connoisseur and that must be discovered. The second referee represents moderate relativism: truth as seen each, according to their opinion and how to interpret it. And the third arbitrator clearly represents the radical relativist or postmodernist stance: the truth is not something that exists and that we must discover; each of us must create it for himself. The fact that there is no truth only is accepted as truth in the postmodern world. We know that an artistic object is unique and unrepeatable and decision always will be the reader’s consideration as such depending on your taste, however nobody can deny that to deliver this set of texts, Emma Sepulveda reminds US to two great authors: Camus and Cioran.
