The Birth of Biopolitics - Lectures at the Collège de France 1978-1979 - by Michel Foucault[Reading report] by Marie Calmettes

2014-12-26

Marie Calmettes is part of the Alternative Management third year specialization program in HEC. She also studies at the École Normale Supérieure and holds a Master's degree from the Paris School of Economics

In these Lectures at the Collège de France (1978-1979), Foucault traces back the main stages in the art of governing, which has been transformed in the Westernized world since the 18th century. He analyzes the rise of liberalism and neo-liberalism, respectively in the 18th and 20th century. Foucault distinguishes two main streams in neo-liberalism, namely the German ordoliberalism and the neo-liberalism from the Chicago School. Beyond important differences, these two versions have in common the generalization of the homo œconomicus model to all the fields of society. The individual, as an economic subject, has become governable and civil society provides a link between governants and governed
