Michel Foucault, beyond structuralism and hermeneutics by Hubert L Dreyfus ( Book )
40 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 1,165 libraries worldwide
This book, which Foucault himself has judged accurate, is the first to provide a sustained, coherent analysis of Foucault's work as a whole. To demonstrate the sense in which Foucault's work is beyond structuralism and hermeneutics, the authors unfold a careful, analytical exposition of his oeuvre. They argue that during the of Foucault's work became a sustained and largely successful effort to develop a new method -- "interpretative analytics" -- capable of explaining both the logic of structuralism's claim to be an objective science and the apparent validity of the hermeneutical counterclaim that the human sciences can proceed only by understanding the deepest meaning of the subject and his tradition. -- from http://www.barnesandnoble.com (August 19, 2011).
Ethics : subjectivity and truth by Michel Foucault ( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 1,071 libraries worldwide
Few philosophers have had as strong an influence on the twentieth century as Michel Foucault. In 1994, ten years after his death, his French publisher, Gallimard, issued Dits et ecrits, the first complete collection of all Foucault's publications outside his monographs. It is a great pleasure for The New Press to bring the most important work from Dits et ecrits - including much never before published in the United States - to English-speaking readers in a definitive three-volume series edited by Paul Rabinow. This first volume contains the famous course summaries Foucault submitted to the College de France each year from 1970 and 1982. Never before available in English, these writings provide a lucid and accessible overview of Foucault's work in progress during this time, including his groundbreaking analyses of penal institutions, psychiatry, "biopolitics," and the modern subject.

French DNA : trouble in purgatory by Paul Rabinow ( Book )

"In 1993, an American biotechnology company, Millennium Pharmaceuticals, and France's premier genetics lab, the Centre d'Etude du Polymorphisme Humaine (CEPH), developed plans for a collaborative effort to discover diabetes genes. The two companies had agreed that the CEPH would supply Millennium with a store of genetic material collected from a large number of French families, and Millennium would supply funding and expertise in new technologies to accelerate the identification of the genes, terms that the French government had approved. But in early 1994, just as the collaboration was to begin, the French government abruptly called a halt. The government insisted that under no circumstances could the CEPH be permitted to give the Americans that most precious of all substances - never before named in such a manner - French DNA." "French DNA is about international competition, the future of human health, ferocious financial conflict and the intersection of culture and science - the place where, finally DNA became French."--Jacket.

A machine to make a future : biotech chronicles by Paul Rabinow ( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
"A Machine to Make a Future represents a remarkably original look at the present and possible future of biotechnology research in the wake of the mapping of the human genome. The central tenet of Celera Diagnostics - the California biotech company whose formative work during 2003 is the focus of the book - is that the emergent knowledge about the genome, with its profound implications for human health, can now be turned into a powerful diagnostic apparatus - one that will yield breakthrough diagnostic and therapeutic products (and potentially, profit)."--BOOK JACKET.

Anthropos today : reflections on modern equipment by Paul Rabinow ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 318 libraries worldwide
The discipline of anthropology is, at its best, characterized by turbulence, self-examination, and inventiveness. In recent decades, new thinking and practice within the field has certainly reflected this pattern, as shown for example by numerous fruitful ventures into the "politics and poetics" of anthropology. Surprisingly little attention, however, has been given to the simple insight that anthropology is composed of claims, whether tacit or explicit, about anthropos and about logos--and the myriad ways in which these two Greek nouns have been, might be, and should be, connected. Anthropos.
Designs for an anthropology of the contemporary by Paul Rabinow ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
N this compact volume, two of anthropology's most influential theorists, Paul Rabinow and George E. Marcus, engage in a series of conversations about the past, present, and future of anthropological knowledge and practice. James Faubion joins in several exchanges to facilitate and elaborate the dialogue, and Tobias Rees moderates the discussions and contributes an introduction and an afterword to the volume. Most of the conversations are focused on contemporary challenges to how anthropology understands its subject and how ethnographic research projects are designed and carried out. Rabinow and Marcus reflect on what remains distinctly anthropological about the study of contemporary events and processes, and they contemplate productive new directions for the field. The two converge in Marcus's emphasis on the need to redesign pedagogical practices for training anthropological researchers and in Rabinow's proposal of collaborative initiatives in which ethnographic research designs could be analyzed, experimented with, and transformed.
