MICHEL FOUCAULT: Key Concepts

Edited by Dianna Taylor

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, analysing 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 coordinates to map Foucault’s work. But more than just a guide to his work, Michel Foucault: Key Concepts introduces Foucault’s thinking, equipping the reader with a set of tools that will facilitate and enhance further study of one of the most influential thinkers of recent years.
