Graham Burchell – Michel Foucault, La société punitive: an editorial curiosity

Graham Burchell, the translator of all-but-one of Foucault’s Collège de France lecture courses, has sent me a note on small but important ‘curiosity’ in the course he is currently translating: La société punitive. I’ve put up the whole of his note in a page on this site, as part of the ‘Foucault Resources‘ area.

The note concerns Foucault’s citation of Beccaria in the course summary. It’s a minor point, but a good example of why checking references back to original sources is almost always worthwhile. My thanks to Graham for sharing this point with Progressive Geographies.
