Security, territory, population : lectures at the Collège de France, 1977-78 by Michel Foucault( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marking a major development in Foucault's thinking, this book derives from the lecture course which he gave at the College de France between January and April, 1978. Taking as his starting point the notion of "bio-power," introduced both in his 1976 course Society Must be Defended and in the first volume of his History of Sexuality, Foucault sets out to study the emergence of this new technology of power over population."--Jacket
L'Etat providence by François Ewald( Book )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"THE BIRTH OF SOLIDARITY traces the emergence of social welfare legislation through debates about workplace accidents in France. François Ewald shows that with industrialization in the 19th century, workplace accidents became increasingly frequent and complex, and the rise of statistics and insurance shifted ideas about who should be held responsible. Whereas early commentators claimed workers and their patrons were responsible for the consequences of workplace accidents, by 1898 the French government declared that workplace accidents needed to be covered by a state-regulated social security policy. This shift in approach marked the emergence of the modern French welfare state. The book is divided into three parts. In the first, Ewald looks at the 1841 law governing child labor in factories and 1830s court cases concerning workplace accidents to show how these industrial regulations challenged the earlier liberal philosophies involving a social contract, which had assumed individual benevolence as the basis for all social assistance. In contrast, new forms of patronage emerging in the 1840s required French employers to provide compensation for their workers, including pensions, education, and company stores. The second part considers the development of insurance as an outgrowth of the philosophy of Adolphe Quételet, who applied probabilistic calculus to social phenomena, like risk. Ewald shows that insurance gave workers a way to save for the future and the wealthy a guarantee against accidents. The third part looks at legislators' increased focus on social solidarity rather than individual responsibility in the latter half of the 19th century, with the 1898 labor law solidifying the government's role as a regulator acting on behalf of workers, and insurance agents' role in assessing fault and responsibility. Ewald, who had been a Maoist activist during the French student uprising of May 1968, became Michel Foucault's doctoral student and assistant in the 1970s. When Foucault's partner Daniel Defert was commissioned by the French Labour Ministry to do a series of studies on the history of workplace accidents, Defert enlisted Ewald, along with a number of Foucault's other students, to conduct the research. This research eventually formed the basis of Ewald's dissertation and first book, Histoire de l'Etat providence: Les Origines de la solidarité, originally published in 1986, revised in 1996, and now translated into English for the first time, with a
The hermeneutics of the subject : lectures at the Collège de France, 1981-82 by Michel Foucault( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hermeneutics of the Subject is the third volume in the collection of Michel Foucault's lectures at the College de France, one of the world's most prestigious institutions. Faculty at the College give public lectures, in which they present works-in-progress on any subject of their choosing. Foucault's wide-ranging lectures influenced his groundbreaking works like The History of Sexuality and Discipline and Punish. In the lectures comprising this volume, Foucault focuses on how the "self" and the "care of the self" were conceived during the period of antiquity, beginning with Socrates. The problems of the ethical formation of the self, Foucault argues, form the background for our own questions about subjectivity and remain at the center of contemporary moral thought. This series of lectures throws new light on Foucault's final works and shows the full depth of his engagement with ancient thought. Lucid and provocative, The Hermeneutics of the Subject reveals Foucault at the height of his powers."--
Sécurité, territoire, population : Cours au Collège de France (1977-1978) by Michel Foucault( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in French and Spanish and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Partant du problème du biopouvoir introduit à la fin du cours de 1976, Il faut défendre la société, Michel Foucault déplace soudain l'horizon du cours : il s'agit non plus de l'histoire des dispositifs de sécurité, qui passe provisoirement au second plan, mais de la généalogie de l'État moderne, à travers les procédures mises en œuvre, en Occident, pour assurer le « gouvernement des hommes »
Les anormaux : cours au Collège de France : (1974-1975) by Michel Foucault( Book )

C'est à partir de multiples sources, théologiques, juridiques et médicales, que Foucault aborde le problème de ces individus "dangereux" que l'on appelle, au XIXe siècle, les "anormaux". Il en définit les 3 figures principales : les "monstres", qui font référence aux lois de la nature, les "incorrigibles", pris en charge par les nouveaux dispositifs de dressage du corps, et les "onanistes", qui alimentent une campagne visant à la mise en discipline de la famille moderne

On the government of the living : lectures at the Collège de France, 1979-1980 by Michel Foucault( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these lectures delivered in 1980, Michel Foucault gives an important new inflection to his history of 'regimes of truth.' Following on from the themes of knowledge-power and governmentality, he turns his attention here to the ethical domain of practices of techniques of the self. Why and how, he asks, does the exercise of power as government demand not only acts of obedience and submission, but 'truth acts' in which individuals subject to relations of power are also required to be subjects in procedures of truth-telling? How and why are subjects required not just to tell the truth, but to tell the truth about themselves? These questions lead to a re-reading of Sophocles' Oedipus the King and, through an examination of the texts of Tertullian, Cassian and others, to an analysis of the 'truth acts' in early Christian practices of baptism, penance, and spiritual direction in which believers are called upon to manifest the truth of themselves as subjects always danger of falling into sin. In the public expression of the subject's condition as a sinner, in the rituals of repentance and penance, and in the detailed verbalization of thoughts in the examination of conscience, we see the organization of a pastoral system focused upon confession."--

The government of self and others : lectures at the Collège de France 1982-1983 by Michel Foucault( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

-In the midst of brilliant interpretations of Greek tragedy, political theory, and philosophy, Foucault allows us to rethink the role, the significance, and the transformation of practices of parrA"sia from antiquity to the present. Moreover, in these lectures Foucault constructs a figure of the philosopher in which he recognized himself and with this rereading of Greek thinkers he assures his own placement in philosophical modernity, problematizes his own function, and defines his mode of thinking and being. 'Modern philosophy is a practice which tests its reality in its relationship to politics. It is a practice which finds its function of truth in the criticism of illusion, deception, trickery, and flattery. Finally, it is a practice which finds the object of its exercise in the transformation of the subject by himself and of the subject by the other.-

Leçons sur la volonté de savoir cours au Collège de France (1970-1971) ; [suivi de] Le savoir d'Œdipe by Michel Foucault( Book )

22 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He aquí la transcripción de los cursos del primer año que Michel Foucault impartió en el Collège de France. Su publicación marca una fecha importante en la "recepción" de Foucualt, una fecha a partir de la cual no se podrá leer a Foucualt como antes. En estos cursos descubrimos la profunda unidad del proyecto que va desde "Vigilar y castigar" (1975) -obra dominada por los temas del poder y de la norma- a "El uso de los placeres" y "La inquietud de sí" (1984) -dedicadas a la ética de la subjetividad-. Estas "Leçons sur la volonté de savoir" nos recuerdan que el trabajo de Foucualt siempre ha tenido un objetivo: la verdad. "Vigilar y castigar" cierra una búsqueda sobre el papel de las formas jurídicas en la formación de la práctica de decir la verdad, cuyo origen encontramos aquí. La verdad nace en los conflictos, en la competencia de las pretensiones, que hallan la posibilidad de descubrir quién tiene razón y quién se equivoca en los rituales de los procesos judiciales. En el propio seno de la Grecia antigua se suceden y se enfrentan diferentes formas jurídicas, diferentes maneras de exponer lo verdadero y lo falso, en las que muy pronto se van a inscribir las querellas de los sofistas y de los filósofos. Sófocles, en "Edipo rey", pone en escena la potencia propia de las formas de decir la verdad: éstas instituyen el poder de la misma manera que lo destituyen. Frente a Freud, que hace de "Edipo" el drama de un inconfesable deseo sexual, Foucualt muestra que la tragedia articula los lazos de la verdad, el poder y el derecho. La historia de la verdad es la historia de la tragedia. Más allá del irenismo de Aristóteles, que situaba la voluntad de verdad en el deseo de conocimiento, Michel Foucault profundiza la visión trágica de la verdad inaugurada por Nietzsche, que él arranca de un diálogo subterráneo con Deleuze sobre la lectura heideggeriana. ¿Quién se atreverá, después de este libro, a hablar de un Foucualt escéptico?

La société punitive cours au Collège de France (1972-1973) by Michel Foucault( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in French and Italian and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Du site de l'éd.: Quel sort nos sociétés réservent-elles à ceux «dont elles veulent se débarrasser» ? Telle est la question à laquelle Michel Foucault tente de répondre dans ce cours prononcé en 1971. Il cerne d'emblée, en l'explicitant, l'insuffisance actuelle des notions d'«exclusion» et de «transgression», pour étudier dans leur développement historique les «tactiques fines de la sanction», soit les méthodes punitives à travers leurs applications. À l'origine de ces pratiques, la guerre civile, «matrice générale qui va permettre de comprendre la mise en place et le fonctionnement d'une stratégie particulière de la pénalité : celle de l'enfermement» ; enfermement carcéral, enfermement asilaire aussi, dont Foucault étudie le rôle dans notre système pénal. Enfermement du criminel, «ennemi» «étranger» mais non extérieur» ; phénomène de la criminalité à propos duquel discours et institutions s'organiseront au nom de la psychopathologie de la déviance. L'analyse généalogique menée dans ce cours prélude à Surveiller et punir
