FROM THE PUBLISHER - 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. Now 'The New Press' brings the most important work from 'Dits et ecrits' 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. These writings provide a lucid and accessible of Foucault's work in progress during this time, including his groundbreaking analyses of penal institutions, psychiatry, 'biopolitics,' and the modern subject. A second section contains interviews, along with Foucault's key writings on ethics, including some of the riskiest and most personal writing of Foucault's career. The first in a three-volume series of works by the French philosopher Michel Foucault (The Order of Things; The History of Sexuality), who died in 1984, Ethics: Subjectivity and Truth/Vol. I, The Essential Works of Michel Foucault (1954-1984), includes essays, lectures and interviews that address individuality, sexuality, psychiatry and politics. Of special interest are course summaries Foucault delivered to the College of France, published in English for the first time. Bookseller Inventory # 23633

Ethics, the first of three volumes in the collection, provides a lucid and accessible overview of Foucault's work.

A second section contains interviews, along with Foucault's key writings on ethics. Winner of the Choice Outstanding Academic Book Award.
