Neu in Le foucaldien: Onur Erdur bespricht "40 Jahre Überwachen und Strafen"

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Surveiller et punir (1975), Marc Rölli and Roberto Nigro have edited a German volume that deals with the power analysis developed in Foucault's historical study on the birth of the prison: Vierzig Jahre "Überwachen und Strafen". Zur Aktualität der Foucault'schen Machtanalyse (Bielefeld: Transcript 2017). However, this edited volume is more than the appreciation of an already sufficiently canonized piece of thinking and writing. Rather, it discusses the question of Foucault's topicality, that is, the significance of Surveiller et punir in order to better understand the power relations that shape our immediate present.
