The Irony…..June 25, 2013
This morning a copy of Michel Foucault’s Security, Territory, Population: Lectures at the College De France, 1977-78 dropped through my letter box. This is one of his main discussions of ‘governmentality’ and the state.
Have a look at the bottom of the title page…
It’s translated into English courtesy of a Quai D’Orsay cultural diplomacy fund….so even if Foucault’s point was to reveal the operation of power the state still exploits him.
