The Hermeneutics of the Subject: Lectures at the Collège de France 1981-1982 by Michel .

Arnold I. Davidson is the Robert O. Anderson Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago and professor of the History of Political Philosophy at the University of Pisa.

Le mythe de l'authenticité: Lectures, interprétations, dramaturgies de Britannicus de Jean Racine en France, 1669–2004. The topic of the lecture was one which Foucault had long felt to be close to the heart of his work. The published transcript is itself only a fragment. By VanhaesebrouckKarel. With a foreword by Christian Biet. The closer reading of Kant’s essay on Enlightenment which Foucault promises is missing here; the gap is filled, however, by another related essay by Foucault entitled ‘What is Enlightenment?’, in Paul Rabinow’s American Foucault Reader These two pieces are best read together.

Foucault's wide-ranging lectures at this school, delivered throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, clearly influenced his groundbreaking books, especially The History of Sexuality and Discipline and Punish. In the lectures comprising this volume, Foucault focuses on how the "self" and the "care of the self" were conceived during the period of antiquity, beginning with Socrates. The problems of the ethical formation of the self, Foucault argues, form the background for our own questions about subjectivity and remain at the center of contemporary moral thought.

Lucid and provocative, The Hermeneutics of the Subject reveals Foucault at the height of his powers. Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas. He held a chair at the Collège de France with the title "History of Systems of Thought," but before he was Professor at University of Tunis, Tunisia, and then Professor at University Paris VIII. He lectured at several different Universities over the world as at the University at Buffalo, the University of California, Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas.

The hermeneutics of the subject.

The Hermeneutics of the Subject (1981-1982). The Government of Self and Others (1982-1983)

The Hermeneutics of the Subject (1981-1982). The Government of Self and Others (1982-1983). The Courage of Truth (1983-1984). Print (Hardback & Paperback). On the proposal of Jules Vuillemin, a chair in the department of Philosophy and History was created at Collège de France to replace the late Jean Hyppolite. The title of the new chair was The history of systems of thought and it was created on 30 November 1969. Foucault's challenge to himself in these series of lectures is to try and decipher the genealogical split between power in ancient and Medieval society and late modern society, such as our own.

In the years he taught at the Coll?ge de France, this was Michel Foucault's sole foray into the field of contemporary history. This course thus raises questions of political philosophy and social policy that are at the heart of current debates about the role and status of neo-liberalism in twentieth century politics. A remarkable feature of these lectures is their discussion of contemporary economic theory and practice, culminating in an analysis of the model of homo oeconomicus

The Hermeneutics of the Subject is the third volume in the collection of Michel Foucault's lectures at the Collège de France, where faculty give public lectures on any topic of their choosing. Attended by thousands, Foucault's lectures were seminal events in the world of French letters, and his ideas expressed there remain benchmarks of contemporary critical inquiry.

This series of lectures continues to throw new light on Foucault's final works, and shows the full depth of his engagement with ancient thought. Lucid and provocative, The Hermeneutics of the Subject reveals Foucault at the height of his powers.

  • Not his best lecture but ok to look at his research. And yet not deep on the meaning of the human subject but more a recount of the idea of the goal of each individual life from different philosophers of human being. Nice details on Seneca's double standards .

  • This is a solid read -- one of his better lecture series. I bought a used copy and the quality was poor so the seller refund the cost.

  • Very good book

  • an astounding text to labor with and to grow with.

  • This purchase arrived in a timely manner.

    "Words which are beautiful are seldom true."

  • Essential for understanding how we learn.

  • With wit and subtlety, Foucault tells here the story of how Western philosophy became progressively disengaged from life -- and, more importantly, what (and how) philosophy sought to teach us before that fatal split. The result is a long but consistently engaging series of historical meditations on the relevance of philosophy to everyday life. For those of us who never had a chance to attend Foucault's lectures (at the College de France 500 audience members reportedly overflowed a 300 person lecture hall in order to hear Foucault make these weekly presentations of his previous year's research), reading these clearly translated lectures makes for a truly mind expanding experience, and I found these to be the most stimulating of the three lectures courses translated so far (although "Society Must be Defended" is really wonderful too!)

  • I repute this book one of the best because the class take the moment that Foucault discover subjectivity as more powerful than power, when secularization leave people free of religion. The book, as the other of collection, was done taking the tapes and Foucault`s class notes and rebuilding the class lesson. It`s very detailed, more than 550 pages. Foucault works with I and II century of Roman Empire, but he put it in perspective. Greeks and Roman Republic, Roman transition and then Roman democratic empire. He follows how epicureans, cynics and stoics reacts face the rise of Roman Empire. He tries to distinguish the parrhesi­a (fearless speech and freedom) as a different dimension between the Platonic epistrophe and the Christian metanoia vis a vis the transformation of the relationship of self care and self knowledge. After the rise of empire, public life becomes mundanity and the relationship between self care with self knowledge includes a conversion to yourself that differentiate parrhesi­a from epistrophe and metanoia. The last two had erased completely the meaning of parrhesía in the ancient world, deleting an original sense of truth and subjectivity where the subject was tied with the truth talked by himself. Epistrophe was the reminiscence of a past world/life, and the metanoi­a was the conversion to a new world/life, but parrhesia was the conversion to himself understood as the present and truth world/life. I think that the book is the Foucault`s "What Is The Philosophy?" The pages where he opposes paidea and parrhesi­a are a lesson about the difference between truth in mass media and truth in web media; the truth of blogosphere, forums and alike. The rescue of parrhesi­a`s meaning in the ancient society is a very actual problem and show ours spiritual and social troubles in a new light. The edition has a Frédéric Gros` essay in the end of the book that try to contextualize the Course and talk about all material in the Foucault`s notebooks that he will use in the last book about the flesh, and never used but in this class.
