Powers of freedom reframing political thought by Nikolas S Rose ( )
39 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An impressive approach to an important and influential school of thought, derived from Foucault's writings on governmentality, by one of its major exponents. Nikolas Rose's book will serve as an intelligent and critical introduction to governmentality for students and scholars alike
Foucault and political reason : liberalism, neo-liberalism, and rationalities of government ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Despite the enormous influence of Michel Foucault on gender studies, social theory, and cultural studies, his work has been relatively neglected in the study of politics. Although he never published a book on the state, in the late 1970s Foucault examined the technologies of power used to regulate society and the ingenious recasting of power and agency that he saw as both consequence and condition of their operation. These twelve essays provide a critical introduction to Foucault's work on politics, exploring its relevance to past and current thinking about liberal and neo-liberal forms of government. Moving away from the great texts of liberal political philosophy, this book looks closely at the technical means with which the ideals of liberal political rationalities have been put into practice in such areas as schools, welfare, the insurance industry, and the self-esteem movement in California
Governing the soul : the shaping of the private self by Nikolas S Rose ( Book )
28 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work is now widely recognised as one of the founding texts in a new approach to analyzing the links between political power, expertise and the self. This "governmentality" perspective has had important implications for a range of academic disciplines including criminology, political theory, sociology and psychology and has generated much theoretical innovation and empirical investigation. This second edition adds a new introduction setting out the methodological and conceptual bases of this approach and a new final chapter that considers some of the implications of recent developments in the government of subjectivity
Politics of life itself : biomedicine, power, and subjectivity in the twenty-first century by Nikolas S Rose ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For centuries, medicine aimed to treat abnormalities. But today normality itself is open to medical modification. Equipped with a new molecular understanding of bodies and minds, and new techniques for manipulating basic life processes at the level of molecules, cells, and genes, medicine now seeks to manage human vital processes. The Politics of Life Itself offers a much-needed examination of recent developments in the life sciences and biomedicine that have led to the widespread politicization of medicine, human life, and biotechnology." "Avoiding the hype of popular science and the pessimism of most social science, Nikolas Rose analyzes contemporary molecular biopolitics, examining developments in genomics, neuroscience, pharmacology, and psychopharmacology and the ways they have affected racial politics, crime control, and psychiatry. Rose analyzes the transformation of biomedicine from the practice of healing to the government of life; the new emphasis on treating disease susceptibilities rather than disease; the shift in our understanding of the patient; the emergence of new forms of medical activism; the rise of biocapital; and the mutations in biopower. He concludes that these developments have profound consequences for who we think we are, and who we want to be. Book jacket."--Jacket
Inventing our selves : psychology, power, and personhood by Nikolas S Rose ( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inventing Our Selves provides a radical new approach to the analysis of our current regime of the self, and the values of autonomy, identity, individuality, liberty, and choice that animate it. It draws upon the work of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and recent feminist scholarship on the body and the self to propose a novel genealogy of subjectivity. It argues that the "psy" disciplines - psychology in particular - have played a key role in "inventing our selves," making visible and practicable certain features of persons, their conducts and their relations with one another, inventing new forms of expertise, transforming authority in a therapeutic direction, and changing the ethical techniques by means of which humans have come to understand and act upon themselves in the name of their truth. This is illustrated through studies of "psy" disciplines in factories, schools, clinics, the military, public opinion, and therapy

Neuro : the new brain sciences and the management of the mind by Nikolas S Rose ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The brain sciences are influencing our understanding of human behavior as never before, from neuropsychiatry and neuroeconomics to neurotheology and neuroaesthetics. Many now believe that the brain is what makes us human, and it seems that neuroscientists are poised to become the new experts in the management of human conduct. Neuro describes the key developments--theoretical, technological, economic, and biopolitical--that have enabled the neurosciences to gain such traction outside the laboratory. It explores the ways neurobiological conceptions of personhood are influencing everyt
Governing the present : administering economic, social and personal life by Peter Miller ( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The literature on governmentality has had a major impact across the social sciences over the past decade, and much of this has drawn upon the pioneering work by Peter Miller and Nikolas Rose. This volume will bring together key papers from their work for the first time, including those that set out the basic frameworks, concepts and ethos of this approach to the analysis of political power and the state, and others that analyse specific domains of the conduct of conduct, from marketing to accountancy, and from the psychological management of organizations to the government of economic life. Bringing together empirical papers on the government of economic, social and personal life, the volume demonstrates clearly the importance of analysing these as conjoint phenomena rather than separate domains, and questions some cherished boundaries between disciplines and topic areas. Linking programmes and strategies for the administration of these different domains with the formation of subjectivities and the transformation of ethics, the papers cast a new light on some of the leading issues in contemporary social science modernity, democracy, reflexivity and individualisation. This volume will be indispensable for all those, from whatever discipline in the social sciences, who have an interest in the concepts and methods necessary for critical empirical analysis of power relations in our present" -- from book cover
