News and resources on French thinker Michel Foucault (1926-1984)

Kaveh Dastooreh, Vers une sociologie foucaldienne. Réunir l’objectivation et la subjectivation, L’Harmattan, 2015

L’œuvre foucaldienne est aussi une œuvre sociologique. Sa pensée conduit à une pratique autoréflexive de la sociologie. Ce qui rapproche Foucault des sociologues, c’est sa compréhension du sujet à travers un social devenu historique ; cette Histoire nous revient en tant que forme culturelle. La question centrale est ce social primordial dans la constitution de l’individu. Sa sociologie met en lumière la question “qui sommes-nous en train de devenir ?” pour construire un diagnostic sociologique à la fois moderne et paradoxal.

The study proposes a reading of the sociological representation of Foucault’s oeuvre: Foucault’s work can be described as sociology, and it can certainly also be said that there is a sociological program underlying his work. The discussion of his work offers an ideal opportunity to trace back the contours of a social criticism and also that of a sociological auto-reflection. Analysis of the related economies of objectivity/subjectivity and their combinations in Foucault’s work provide a better understanding of the originality of his sociology.
