Description

In¬†Foucault Beyond Foucault¬†Jeffrey Nealon argues that critics have too hastily abandoned Foucault’s mid-career reflections on power, and offers a revisionist reading of the philosopher’s middle and later works. Retracing power’s “intensification” in Foucault, Nealon argues that forms of political power remain central to Foucault’s concerns. He allows us to reread Foucault’s own conceptual itinerary and, more importantly, to think about how we might respond to the mutations of power that have taken place since the philosopher’s death in 1984. In this, the book stages an overdue encounter between Foucault and post-Marxist economic history.
