Foucault's Flirt? Neoliberalism, the Left and the Welfare State: A Commentary on La dernière leçon de Michel Foucault and Critiquer Foucault

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftReviewForskningpeer review

Resumé

An essay on the review of works interpreting the lectures of Michel Foucault on neoliberalism is presented. It offers a history of neoliberalism as a way to reinvent the left and examines the way Foucault betrayed the left while resisting to be connected with a normative political programme or principle for a neoliberal stance. The author relates the risks in neoliberal thought for losing what is specific in definitive statements and the loss of neoliberal thought coherence within a reality.
