GALVAN, Valentín. Michel Foucault's extra-academic reception in the culture of the Spanish transition: the antipsychiatry and the Histoire de la folie in the progressive psychiatrists. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp.485-500. ISSN 2340-2733.

This article contributes to the extra-academic reception of Michel Foucault's thought, referring to the psychiatric fight. The first antiinstitutional and antipsychiatric texts have been looked through, those which were read in Spain and were closely related to a part of Foucault's work, the interest and influence risen by Histoire de la folie among Spanish progressive psychiatrists have been particulary analysed.

Keywords : Extra-academic reception; antipsychiatry; Foucault; Histoire de la folie; progressive psychiatrists.
