A clear and critical account of Foucault's political thought: what he said, how it's been used and its influence today

This book surveys Michel Foucault's thought in the context of his life and times, drawing on the latest primary and secondary materials to explain the political implications of each phase of his work and the relationships between each phase. It also illustrates how his thought has been used in the political sphere and examines the importance of his work for politics today.

One of the most prominent theorists in the contemporary humanities and social sciences, Foucault is known as a radical thinker who disturbs our understanding of society. He also presented a moving target, continually changing his concerns and his apparent position. So, until now, comparatively little attention has been given to his politics.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a clear and critical account of Foucault s political thought: what he said, how it s been used and its influence today. Michel Foucault (1926-1984), French philosopher, social theorist, historian of ideas and literary critic, is primarily known as a radical thinker who disturbs our understanding of society, yet little attention has been paid to his politics. Now, Mark Kelly details and criticises all of Foucault s major political ideas: the historical relativity of knowledge; exclusion and abnormality; his radical reconception of power; his historical analysis of biopolitics in terms of discipline and biopower; his concept of governmentality; and his late work around ethics and subjectivity. Kelly shows how Foucault s positions changed over time, how his thought has been used in the political sphere and examines the importance of his work for politics today. It engages with Foucault s entire corpus, from his first works right up to his posthumously published College de France lectures and the unabridged version of the History of Madness. It looks at the theoretical reception of Foucault s thought and how it has been applied to real-world problems. Student-friendly text boxes highlight and explain key ideas.
