Foucault und die Frage des Politischen: Eine Bestandsaufnahme

Oliver Marchart and Renate Martinsen have edited a German volume that connects Foucault with the question of the political and attempts to establish new perspectives on contemporary issues of political theory and our political present: Foucault und das Politische: Transdisziplinäre Impulse für die politische Theorie der Gegenwart (Wiesbaden: Springer 2019). The papers of the volume reflect basic terms of political theory and philosophy, relate Foucault’s oeuvre to the works of other famous theorists and show the wide range of Foucault’s analyses in terms of criticizing and rethinking the foundations of society and political life.
