A philosophy of walking by Frdric Gros( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frédéric Gros charts the many different ways we get from A to B--the pilgrimage, the promenade, the protest march, the nature ramble--and reveals what they say about us. Gros draws attention to other thinkers who also saw walking as something central to their practice. On his travels he ponders Thoreau's eager seclusion in Walden Woods; the reason Rimbaud walked in a fury, while Nerval rambled to cure his melancholy. He shows us how Rousseau walked in order to think, while Nietzsche wandered the mountainside to write. In contrast, Kant marched through his hometown every day, exactly at the same hour, to escape the compulsion of thought
The hermeneutics of the subject : lectures at the Collège de France, 1981-1982 by Michel Foucault( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 811 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 )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 160 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

Anthropology from a pragmatic point of view by Immanuel Kant( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View essentially reflects the last lectures Kant gave for his annual course in anthropology, which he taught from 1772 until his retirement in 1796. The lectures were published in 1798, with the largest first printing of any of Kant's works. Intended for a broad audience, they reveal not only Kant's unique contribution to the newly emerging discipline of anthropology, but also his desire to offer students a practical view of the world and of humanity's place in it. With its focus on what the human being "as a free-acting being makes of himself, or can and should make of himself," the Anthropology also offers readers an application of some central elements of Kant's philosophy. This volume offers a new annotated translation of the text by Robert B. Louden, together with an introduction by Manfred Kuehn that explores the context and themes of the lectures."--Jacket

Réflexion nuancée sur la justice qui emprunte d'abord le chemin de la philosophie. On y aborde le sens de la pénalité et de l'impunité. Le second chemin du livre passe par les politiques pénitentiaires contemporaines, l'évolution de la prison et des peines. Le troisième et dernier chemin est celui de la justice reconstructive, qui vise à inscrire la peine dans une relation de réparation entre le coupable et la victime. [SDM]

Foucault, Wittgenstein de possibles rencontres by Frdric Gros( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in French and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Foucault, Wittgenstein : de possibles rencontres. La tentation est grande en effet de confronter, comparer, faire jouer ensemble ces deux grandes références de la pensée contemporaine, même s'il ne saurait être question d'établir aucun rapport d'influence directe (Foucault a très peu lu Wittgenstein, il ne le cite que deux ou trois fois, et encore de manière allusive). Mais ces deux figures ont en commun de constituer, pour l'histoire philosophique du XXe siècle, des icônes . Par là on veut dire que, à la différence de beaucoup d'autres, Foucault et Wittgenstein, en plus de représenter un ensemble défini d'énoncés et un certain nombre de conceptions spécifiques, ce sont immédiatement des visages, des styles de pensée, des pratiques d'existence. D'autre part, on retrouverait assez facilement chez nos deux auteurs un rapport critique, implicite ou explicite, ou même simplement désinvolte à la philosophie traditionnelle (comme un ensemble de systèmes de connaissances qu'il conviendrait d'étudier, de commenter, de corriger ...). Mais ce dépassement d'une philosophie classique s'opère chez les deux au nom d'une dimension éthique." P. [4] of cover

The courage of truth (the government of self and others II) : lectures at the Collège de France, 1983-1984 by Michel Foucault( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The course given by Michel Foucault from February to March 1984, under the title 'The Courage of Truth', was his last at the Collège de France. His death shortly after, on June 25th, tempts us to detect a philosophical testament in these lectures, especially in view of the prominence they give to the theme of death, notably through a reinterpretation of Socrates' last words--'Crito, we owe a cock to Asclepius'--which, with Georges Dumézil, Foucault understands as the expression of a profound gratitude towards philosophy for its cure of the only serious illness: that of false opinions and prejudices. These lectures continue and radicalize the analyses of those of the previous year. Foucault's 1983 lectures investigated the function of 'truth telling' in politics in order to establish courage and conviction as ethical conditions for democracy irreducible to the formal rules of consensus. With the Cynics, this manifestation of the truth no longer appears simply as a risky speaking out, but in the very substance of existence. In fact, Foucault offers an incisive study of ancient Cynicism as practical philosophy, athleticism of the truth, public provocation, and ascetic sovereignty. The scandal of the true life is constructed in opposition to Platonism and its world of transcendent intelligible forms."--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket
