Society must be defended : lectures at the Collège de France, 1975-76 by Michel Foucault( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 777 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."--Jacket
Security, territory, population : lectures at the Collège de France, 1977-78 by Michel Foucault( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 483 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."--Jacket
The hermeneutics of the subject : lectures at the Collège de France, 1981-1982 by Michel Foucault( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 441 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."--Jacket

Le gouvernement de soi et des autres by Michel Foucault( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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." "--Page 4 of cover

He aquí la transcripción de los cursos del primer año que Michel Foucault impartió en el Collège de France. Su publicación marca una fecha importante en la "recepción" de Foucualt, una fecha a partir de la cual no se podrá leer a Foucualt como antes. En estos cursos descubrimos la profunda unidad del proyecto que va desde "Vigilar y castigar" (1975) -obra dominada por los temas del poder y de la norma- a "El uso de los placeres" y "La inquietud de sí" (1984) -dedicadas a la ética de la subjetividad-. Estas "Leçons sur la volonté de savoir" nos recuerdan que el trabajo de Foucualt siempre ha tenido un objetivo: la verdad. "Vigilar y castigar" cierra una búsqueda sobre el papel de las formas jurídicas en la formación de la práctica de decir la verdad, cuyo origen encontramos aquí. La verdad nace en los conflictos, en la competencia de las pretensiones, que hallan la posibilidad de descubrir quién tiene razón y quién se equivoca en los rituales de los procesos judiciales. En el propio seno de la Grecia antigua se suceden y se enfrentan diferentes formas jurídicas, diferentes maneras de exponer lo verdadero y lo falso, en las que muy pronto se van a inscribir las querellas de los sofistas y de los filósofos. Sófocles, en "Edipo rey", pone en escena la potencia propia de las formas de decir la verdad: éstas instituyen el poder de la misma manera que lo destituyen. Frente a Freud, que hace de "Edipo" el drama de un inconfesable deseo sexual, Foucualt muestra que la tragedia articula los lazos de la verdad, el poder y el derecho. La historia de la verdad es la historia de la tragedia. Más allá del irenismo de Aristóteles, que situaba la voluntad de verdad en el deseo de conocimiento, Michel Foucault profundiza la visión trágica de la verdad inaugurada por Nietzsche, que él arranca de un diálogo subterráneo con Deleuze sobre la lectura heideggeriana. ¿Quién se atreverá, después de este libro, a hablar de un Foucualt escéptico?

"Du gouvernement des vivants" es un "curso bisagra". En este curso, pronunciado en el Collège de France en el primer trimestre de 1980, Michel Foucualt prosigue la historia de los "regímenes de verdad" que vertebra el conjunto de los cursos impartidos en el Collège de France, aportando una novedad importante. La exploración, que Foucault había iniciado en el campo de lo jurídico y de lo judicial, y proseguido posteriormente en el campo político -temática de las relaciones poder-saber- y de la gobernabilidad, se centra aquí en el campo de las prácticas y de las técnicas de sí, parte de la ética que Foucault no abandonará después. "¿Cómo es posible que en la cultura occidental cristiana el gobierno de los hombres exija a los que son gobernados, además de actos de obediencia y de sumisión, "actos de verdad", que tienen la particularidad de que no sólo requieren que el sujeto diga la verdad, sino que le exigen además que diga la verdad acerca de sí mismo, de sus faltas, de sus deseos, del estado de su alma?", se interroga Michel Foucualt. Esta pregunta le lleva de una relectura de "Edipo rey" de Sófocles al análisis de los "actos de verdad" propios del cristianismo primitivo, a través de las práctica del bautismo, de la penitencia y de la dirección de conciencia. Foucault decide interesarse por los actos en virtud de los cuales el creyente es llamado a manifestar la verdad sobre lo que él mismo es en tanto que ser indefinidamente falible. De la manifestación pública de su condición de pecador, en el ritual de la penitencia, a la verbalización minuciosa de sus pensamientos más íntimos, en el examen de conciencia, lo que vemos dibujarse es la organización de una economía pastoral centrada en la confesión. "Du gouvernement des vivants" es la primera de las investigaciones, inédita, que Michel Foucault lleva a cabo en el campo de la ética, tanto en los cursos del Collège de France, como en los últimos volúmenes de la "Historia de la sexualidad"
