Was Foucault a pedophile?
Was the philosopher, who is often referred to as the world's "most cited" thinker, a child molester who sexually abused underage boys?
And if the allegations should prove to be true, shouldn't his work also fall victim to the very cancel culture that demonstratively invokes him?
In any case, the allegations are huge and theoretically significant, but are they also true? "As an expert in pedophilia, I am completely at a loss," said the sociologist Pierre Verdrager in an interview with WELT. In his book, Le Grand Renversement, Verdrager analyzed how those who defended pedophilia in the 1960s and 1970s lost their battle.
