Foucault and the Iranian Revolution

This week we revisit Foucault's contentious position on the Iranian Revolution. Why did a "radical" intellectual risked his career and image to support what turned out to be a conservative movement? What lessons does this present for us today in thinking about politics and revolt in a multicultural and globalised world?

Here's the link to the article Sharaad refers to in his recommendation.
