German philosopher and classical philologist Friedrich Nietzsche provided Foucault with a longstanding inspiration. Aligned with Nietzsche’s¬†Genealogy of Morals, Foucault’s work on a “genealogy of knowledge” remains influential for¬†philosophers, social theorists and many other contemporary thinkers.
