Portuguese translation of: “Michel Foucault: the historical formations” by Gilles Deleuze

Shortly after Michel Foucault’s death in 1984, Gilles Deleuze devoted himself to teaching and writing about the thought of his friend. In 1986, he published Foucault, the first book about the prematurely disappeared philosopher.

In 1985 and 1986, Deleuze taught two courses dedicated to Michel Foucault’s thought at the University of Paris. His recorded voice and the transcript of classes are available on the Paris-8 University portal. The first course is called Michel Foucault: the historical formations. The second one is called Michel Foucault: the power. Together they present a formidable panorama of Foucault’s thought, structured by Deleuze according to then three well-knows axes: knowledge, power and subjectivation. The courses exceed the academic and academic scope, establishing with precision the fundamental elements of elucidation of the philosophy of Foucault.

The importance of this material is much more than it’s volume (900-over printed pages, compared to only 140 of the book Foucault). The classes functioned as a kind of laboratory in which Deleuze experimented with the ideas and concepts from which he traced the cartography foucauldian Some of these elements – for example, biopolitic – are not paralleled in the book. For this reason, the courses represent important research material on the thinking of the two philosophers.

The Brazilian translation and the online availability of the courses is been made by Editora Politeia and N-1 Edições. It keeps the testamentary dispositions of Deleuze, who did not want posthumous publications. It only brings to the Brazilian reader what is already on the Internet in French, democratizing access to this little treasure.

In March 2018, we began the online availability of the first course, consisting of 8 classes that will be released monthly.

    Hi Clare, are you aware of either an English translation or pending English translation ( I believe I read Uni Oregan indicated a publication from a grant).
