Product Details


“At last English readers have a chance to read Thomas Lemke’s pioneering study of Foucault’s work on power, governmentality and political reason. At the time of its original writing, Lemke was working with largely unpublished and little-known materials. Although Foucault’s lectures from this period are now all published and translated, the book remains a fundamental work of enduring importance. As well as demonstrating the links between the courses and other writings, it shows Foucault’s reconfiguration of earlier radical positions, and the crucial links between late work on ethics and the question of government.”
—Stuart Elden, Unversity of Warwick

“What good fortune to finally have Lemke’s prescient and careful study of Foucault’s College de France lectures in English! Lemke offers a pedagogical and deeply intelligent interpretation of Foucault’s complex ruminations on discipline, the state, sovereignty, genealogy, subjectivation, Enlightenment, truth, critique and above all power.”
—Wendy Brown
