Michel Foucault / from “Fearless Speech” lecture series (2001)

Parrhesia is a verbal activity in which a speaker expresses his personal relationship to truth through frankness instead of persuasion, truth instead
of flattery, and moral duty instead of self-interest and moral apathy.
– Michel Foucault
