Description: Best known for analyzing domination and power, Michel Foucault shifts his attention to ethics and “technologies of the self” in 1976. In this advanced seminar, we study and critique Foucault’s turn to western antiquity through his lectures and volumes of foregrounding resistance to power through religion, politics and ethics.
