Foucault’s On the Government of the Living – book received and review forthcoming

photoI’ve just received a copy of the latest Foucault lecture course to be translated, 1980’s On the Government of the Living. the translation of Du gouvernement des vivants. The French was published two years ago; there are two lecture courses out in French which are still to appear in English; and then one more to come in French. I can now go back and fill in all the dual references in Chapter Seven of the Foucault’s Last Decade manuscript, as well as check my translations of passages to Graham Burchell’s.

First, though, I have a review of this course, and the 1981 Louvain lectures Mal faire, dire vrai/Wrong Doing, Truth Telling, to complete. This will be sent to Berfrois, for whom I’ve already reviewed two of Foucault’s lecture courses (here and here).
