Held by Berkeley Library, University of California

The most comprehensive collection to date of audio recorded lectures and courses by the renowned French philosopher and historian, Michel Foucault. The English language collection features two lecture series delivered at UC Berkeley in the 1980’s on Truth and Subjectivity and Parrhesia. The French language collection offers five complete semester length courses, covering such quintessentially Foucauldian concepts as Parrhesia, governmentality, neoliberalism, security, biopolitics, and sovereignty. The collection includes recordings spanning two decades of thought and instruction, including Foucault’s final 1984 course at the Collège de France.

This collection was generously donated to the Media Resources Center by Paul Rabinow, Professor of Social Cultural Anthropology and digitized, corrected and arranged by Gisèle Tanasse in 2009.
