Biopolitical Experience

Foucault, Power and Positive Critique

  • Claire Blencowe

About this book


An original, comprehensive interpretation of Michel Foucault's analysis of biopolitics – situating biopolitics in the context of embodied histories of subjectivity, affective investments and structures of experience. Going beyond lamentation at the horrors of biopolitical domination, the book develops a positive-critique of biopolitical experience.
