Although Foucault did not produce any particular work devoted to teaching or education, following authors like Hoskin this text aims to show the importance that teaching practices and discourses have in Foucault’s analysis, particularly in the analysis of what he called governmentality . If we associate these analyses with the concept of ‘ Antropotécnicas ‘ developed by the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, then we have a transparent toolbox for analyzing learning, recognizing that contemporary society is an educating society. © 2016 Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia
