Abnormal: Lectures at the College de France 197...
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

From 1971 until his death in 1984, Foucault gave public lectures at the world-famous College de France. Attended by thousands, these were seminal events in the world of French letters. Picador is proud to be publishing the lectures in thirteen volumes. The lectures comprising 'Abnormal' begin by examining the role of psychiatry in modern criminal justice, and its method of categorizing individuals who 'resemble their crime before they commit it.' Building on the themes of societal self-defense in 'Society Must Be Defended,' Foucault shows how and why defining 'abnormality' and 'normality' were preorogatives of power in the nineteenth century. The College de France lectures add immeasurably to our appreciation of Foucault's work and offer a unique window into his thinking.
