Foucault and Neoliberalism – the debate continues (on Progressive Geographies)

There are some interesting comments on last week’s thoughts on the Foucault and Neoliberalism debate – here. In particular the points made by Stephen Shapiro and Michael Behrent are worth reading – both are situating the discussion within a wider knowledge of French politics at the time, which is a very important move, although they draw different conclusions. Behrent’s comments are drawing upon, and justifying, a piece he published in Modern Intellectual History in 2009 (open access), which is translated in the Zamora collection.
