With this timely commitment, Jacques Bidet unites the theories of arguably the world's two greatest emancipatory political thinkers. In this far-reaching and decisive text, Bidet examines Marxian and Foucauldian criticisms of capitalist modernity. For Marx, the intersection between capital and the market is crucial, while for Foucault, the organizational aspects of capital are what really matter. According to Marx, the ruling class is identified with property; with Foucault, it is the managers who hold power and knowledge that rule. Bidet identifies these two sides of capitalist modernity as 'market' and 'organization', showing that each leads to specific forms of social conflict; against exploitation and austerity, over wages and pensions on the one hand, and against forms of 'medical' and work-based discipline, control of bodies and prisons on the other. Bidet's impetus and clarity however serve a greater purpose: uniting two souls of critical social theory, in order to overcome what has become an age-long separation between the 'old left' and the 'new social movements'.

In this work, originally released in 1983, Barry Smart examines the relevance of Foucault's work for developing an understanding of those issues which lie beyond the limits of Marxist theory and analysis - issues such as 'individualising' forms of power, power-knowledge relations, the rise of 'the social', and the associated socialisation of politics. He argues that there exist clear and substantial differences between Foucault's genealogical analysis and that of Marxist theory. Smart thus presents Foucault's work as a new form of critical theory, whose object is a critical analysis of rationalities, and of how relations of power are rationalised.

"In an extensive series of interviews with Italian Marxist journalist Duccio Trombadori, Foucoult discusses his early history in the French Communist Party, his relationship with Althusser and Sartre, his encounters with the work of Marcuse, Horkheimer, Adorno, and the Frankfurt School, his place in the events of "Mai '68" and other events in recent political history, and the often-hostile reception accorded to his own work from the more traditional political culture of the left"--Back cover.

A Critique of Political Reason

Tracking the development of Foucault's key concepts Lemke offers the most comprehensive and systematic account of Michel Foucault's work on power and government from 1970 until his death in 1984. He convincingly argues, using material that has only partly been translated into English, that Foucault's concern with ethics and forms of subjectivation is always already integrated into his political concerns and his analytics of power. The book also shows how the concept of government was taken up in different lines of research in France before it gave rise to "governmentality studies" in the Anglophone world. A Critique of Political Reason provides a clear and well-structured exposition that is theoretically challenging but also accessible for a wider audience. Thus, the book can beread both as an original examination of Foucault's concept of government and as a general introduction to his "genealogy of power".

Foucault and Law

'An inspirational work that will change the way we think about the legal order.' Professor Pat O'Malley, La Trobe University'This lively and lucid book will do much to show the importance of viewing law as an aspect of governmentality.' Professor David Garland, University of EdinburghWhen he died in 1984, Michel Foucault was regarded as one of the most profoundly influential philosophers of his day. Although the law itself never formed a central focus for Foucault, many of the principal themes in his writings are concerned with issues of governance and power that are of direct relevance to the study of law. And yet, until now, Foucault's work has attracted only fleeting attention from the legal academy.Foucault and Law corrects this oversight. Opening with a lucid, critical and unpretentious account of Foucault's work, Hunt and Wickham map out a terrain of methodological and theoretical principals, providing the groundwork for a new sociology of law as governance.

Situational Tensions of Critic intellectuals

Since there can be no literary theory without a theorist, theorizing must be taken to mean some "person-theorizing" or "theorizing with a certain personage." This book, using Edward W. Said and Frank Lentricchia as examples, analyses the -intellectual- as such, as an informing personage or self-image in contemporary -oppositional criticism-. The literary politics this self-image helps to conceptualize is also analyzed. Focusing on the discursive, institutional, and existential situatedness of the critic-intellectual, this book explores the specific forms of tensions embedded in and constituting his -oppositional criticism-."

Michel Foucault and the Freedom of Thought

This volume offers a map of the underlying movements of Foucault's thought. It demonstrates that Foucault is a philosopher of complex spaces, territories and architectures of thought across the range of his work, and includes analyses of lesser-known texts (Magritte, Pierre Riviere, Brisset) that are hardly mentioned in the secondary literature. The primary sense, direction, and force of Foucault's thought is shown to reside in the connections established between a new conception of space-time and freedom, an open system of relations that shows how he thinks the present differently, designating this effort the thought from Outside. This is the freedom of thought in Foucault - a potentially dangerous or joyful yet necessarily endless effort to connect and reconnect with the Outside that is uniquely Foucauldian.
