Abstract
It has been more than twenty-five years since the death of Michel Foucault, one of the last century’s most crucial philosophers, as well as just as many years since the publication of the final two volumes of The History of Sexuality. Since then, an extraordinary body of interdisciplinary scholarship has emerged around the work of Foucault, with much attention focused on his writings on ethics, neoliberalism, governmentality, biopolitics, and war. The introduction considers notions of futurity, openness, and risk in Foucault’s thought and how such notions intersect with his various projects of relationality.
