Book description

Michel Foucault's work on freedom, subjectivity and power is now central to thinking across an extraordinarily wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, history, psychology, politics, anthropology, sociology and criminology. Michel Foucault: Key Concepts explores Foucault’s central ideas, such as disciplinary power, biopower, bodies, spirituality, and practices of the self. Each essay focuses on a specific concept, analyzing its meaning and uses across Foucault’s work, highlighting its connection to other concepts, and emphasizing its potential applications. Together, the chapters provide the main co-ordinates to map Foucault’s work.


"Michel Foucault: Key Concepts is an excellent resource for anyone approaching Foucault’s work. It offers authoritative and nuanced treatments that mark a new stage in the critical understanding and employment of Foucault’s challenging thought."

Kevin Thompson
