Reviews of Foucault’s first three Collège de France courses, and other pieces at Berfrois

1024px-Sebastiaan_Vrancx_studio_-_A_landscape_with_travellers_ambushed_outside_a_small_town-725x450The piece I published yesterday was on Foucault’s second lecture course at the Collège de France. I have also published reviews of the first and third, which form an initial triptych on the linked themes of measure, inquiry and examination.

Power, Nietzsche and the Greeks: Foucault’s Leçons sur la volonté de savoir(1970-71).

Peasant Revolts, Germanic Law and the Medieval Inquiry” on Théories et institutions pénales (1971-72).

“Discipline, Punish, Examine and Produce: Foucault’s La société punitive” (1972-73).

These three courses will be a major focus of the second of the books I’m currently writing on Foucault, The Birth of Power.

With Berfrois I have also published a piece on the 1979-80 course at the Collège, On the Government of the Living, and the  1981 course at Louvain, Wrong-Doing, Truth-Telling: Confession, Flesh, Power and Truth.

And finally I’ve also written for them on Kant’s Natural Science and Ralph Fiennes’s film of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.
