Foucault: A Critical Introduction

Foucault: A Critical Introduction by Lois McNay
English | April 23rd, 2013 | ISBN: 0826407781, 0745609910 | 206 Pages | EPUB | 0.56 MB

Foucault: A Critical Introduction offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the work of one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. Unlike most books on Foucault, this book offers an assessment of all Foucault's work, including his final writings on governmentality and the self. McNay argues that the later work initiates an important shift in his intellectual concerns which alters any retrospective reading of his writings as a whole.
Foucault and the Government of Disability (Corporealities: Discourses of Disability)

Foucault and the Government of Disability (Corporealities: Discourses of Disability) By Shelley Lynn Tremain
Publisher: University of Michigan Press | 2005-02-16 | ISBN-10: 0472068768 | Pages: 362 | PDF | 965 kb

Foucault and the Government of disability is the first book-length investigation of the relevance and importance of the ideas of Michel Foucault to the field of disability studies-and vice versa. Over the last thirty years, politicized conceptions of disability have precipitated significant social change, including the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, the redesign of urban landscapes, the appearance of closed-captioning on televisions, and the growing recognition that disabled people constitute a marginalized and disenfranchised constituency.

Timothy O'Leary, "Foucault: The Art of Ethics"
Continuum International Publishing Group | ISBN: 0826456278 | (November 2002) | PDF | 212 pages | 10.8 MB

The work of Michael Foucault has been extremely influential in fields as varied as philosophy, history, cultural studies, sociology and sexuality studies. In his later work, Foucault turned to the question of ethics. Working back through history, through the Christian interrogation of desire to the origins of the self in the texts of classical Greece, Foucault attempted to conceive of ethics as an art of the self, as an aesthetics of existence and as a practice of liberty. Foucault and the Art of Ethics argues that Foucault's exploration of the history of sexuality and reinterpretation of the critical philosophical tradition combine to frame a new approach both to the way we understand the tasks of philosophy and to the way we live our lives. The book is essential reading for all those working at the intersection of contemporary debates in philosophy, ethics, politics and cultural studies.

Timothy O'Leary is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Hong Kong. He has spent several years working in the Foucault Archives and has published on Foucault, aesthetics and literature.

Stefano Righetti - Foucault interprete di Nietzsche
Italian | 2014 | 240 pages | ISBN: 8870005593 | EPUB | 0,7 MB

Il presente lavoro intende approfondire un aspetto del pensiero di Foucault ancora poco indagato, per quanto ben noto e indicato da diversi studiosi come un aspetto essenziale del suo lavoro e, più in generale, del pensiero francese contemporaneo. Se i rapporti di Foucault con il pensiero nietzschiano sono infatti al centro di alcuni studi specifici, e se il pensiero di Nietzsche è ormai unanimemente indicato come uno dei riferimenti principali di Foucault, in realtà, le implicazioni di questo rapporto, e il modo in cui Foucault utilizza gli strumenti del pensiero nietzschiano, rimangono avvolti da una certa oscurità e risentono spesso di un'impostazione letteraria generalizzante. Al contrario, in modo approfondito e con risvolti originali, lo studio intende restituire all'interpretazione nietzschiana di Foucault una complessità per molti aspetti inedita. I temi che Foucault assume da Nietzsche e che costituiscono lo sfondo concettuale delle sue opere, dando forma al suo metodo critico, non sono infatti univoci, ma mostrano differenze specifiche a seconda dei diversi momenti del suo pensiero.
