Gary Becker (1930-2014)

Gary Becker, the neoliberal economist discussed in Foucault’s The Birth of Biopolitics, has died. New APPS recognises the importance of his work here. The University of Chicago has an obituary here.

I’ve previously linked to the discussion between François Ewald, Becker and Bernard Harcourt on Foucault’s reading – here and here. Colin Gordon’s reflections on that encounter can be found at Foucault News.
