Society must be defended : lectures at the Collège de France, 1975-76 by Michel Foucault ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From 1971 until his death in 1984, Foucault taught at the College de France, one of the most unique and renowned institutions of higher learning in the world. The College enrolls no students and confers no degrees. Professors are required to deliver lectures to the general public on topics from their ongoing original research. During his tenure at the College, Foucault's teaching, which reached audiences that frequently numbered in the thousands, profoundly influenced a generation of scholars." "These lectures, reconstructed from tape recordings and Foucault's own notes, are now being made available in English for the first time. Under the guidance of series editor Arnold I. Davidson, Picador will publish all thirteen volumes of the lectures in North America." "In "Society Must Be Defended," the inaugural volume in the series, translated by David Macey, Foucault traces the genealogy of the problem of war in society from the seventeenth century to the present. Inverting Clausewitz's famous formulation - "War is politics by other means," Foucault explores the notion that "politics is war by other means" in its relation to race, class struggle, and, of course, power. Providing us with a new model of political rationality, he overturns many of our long-held ideas of sovereignty, the law, and even truth itself. The full significance of the dictum "Society must be defended" becomes clear when Foucault's examination culminates in an extraordinary discussion of modern forms of racism."--BOOK JACKET
Security, territory, population : lectures at the Collège de France, 1977-78 by Michel Foucault ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 503 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."--BOOK JACKET
The hermeneutics of the subject : lectures at the Collège de France, 1981-1982 by Michel Foucault ( Book )
5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 432 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."--BOOK JACKET

"Le cours intitulé "Le courage de la vérité" est le dernier que Michel Foucault aura prononcé au Collège de France, de février à mars 1984. Il meurt quelques mois plus tard, le 25 juin. Ce contexte invite à entendre dans ces leçons un testament philosophique, d'autant plus que le thème de la mort est très présent, notamment à travers une relecture des dernières paroles de Socrate ("Criton, nous devons un coq à Esculape !"), que Foucault, avec G. Dumézil, comprend comme l'expression d'une profonde gratitude envers la philosophie, qui guérit de la seule maladie grave : celle des opinions fausses et des préjugés. Ce cours poursuit et radicalise des analyses menées l'année précédente. Il s'agissait alors d'interroger la fonction du "dire-vrai" en politique, afin d'établir, pour la démocratie, un certain nombre de conditions éthiques irréductibles aux règles formelles du consensus : courage et conviction. Avec les cyniques, cette manifestation du vrai ne s'inscrit plus simplement à travers une prise de parole risquée, mais dans l'épaisseur même de l'existence. Foucault propose en effet une étude décapante du cynisme ancien comme philosophie pratique, athlétisme de la vérité, provocation publique, souveraineté ascétique. Le scandale de la vraie vie est alors construit comme s'opposant au platonisme et à son monde transcendant de Formes intelligibles. "Il n'y a pas d'instauration de la vérité sans une position essentielle de l'altérité. La vérité, ce n'est jamais le même. Il ne peut y avoir de vérité que dans la forme de l'autre monde et de la vie autre." "--P. [4] of cover
