Elisabetta Basso, À propos d’un cours inédit de Michel Foucault sur l’analyse existentielle de Ludwig Binswanger (Lille 1953–54), Revue de Synthèse. December 2016, Volume 137, Issue 1, pp 35–59

Résumé
Cet article examine la manière dont Michel Foucault se rapporte à la psychologie et à la psychopathologie phénoménologiques dans les années 1950, à la lumière des nouvelles sources documentaires que nous avons aujourd’hui à notre disposition. Notre contribution se concentre en particulier sur le manuscrit inédit de l’un des cours donnés par Foucault à l’université de Lille entre 1952 et 1954 : le cours sur « Binswanger et la phénoménologie » (1953-54). L’analyse de ce cours, conçu par Foucault dans le contexte d’une réflexion philosophique sur le problème anthropologique de la psychopathologie, nous permettra enfin de restituer à Foucault la place qui lui revient dans le domaine de la « philosophie de la psychiatrie ».

Elle a publié plusieurs articles sur Michel Foucault et sur l’histoire du mouvement phénoménologique en psychiatrie. Parmi ses publications, Foucault e la Daseinsanalyse : un’indagine metodologica (Milano, Mimesis, 2007) ; l’édition italienne de Ludwig Binswanger, Il sogno (Macerata, Quodlibet, 2009) ; le volume collectif Foucault à Münsterlingen. À l’origine de l’Histoire de la folie, avec Jean-François Bert (Paris, EHESS, 2015).

On Michel Foucault’s unpublished lectures on Ludwig Binswanger’s existential analysis (Lille 1953–54)

Abstract
This paper aims to analyze Michel Foucault’s position toward phenomenological psychology and psychopathology during the 1950s, in light of the new documentary sources available today. Our investigation is especially focused on one of the courses given by Foucault at the University of Lille between 1952 and 1954, namely, the course on “Binswanger and phenomenology” (1953-54). The analysis of this course, which was conceived by Foucault within the context of a philosophical reflection on the anthropological problem of psychopathology, will finally allow us to re-ascribe Foucault the place he deserves in the field of “philosophy of psychiatry”.

Special Issue: Bioethics, Biopolitics and Selfhood, (2016) European Journal of Cultural Studies, 19 (1)

McCormack, D., Salmenniemi, S.
The biopolitics of precarity and the self
(2016) European Journal of Cultural Studies, 19 (1), pp. 3-15.

DOI: 10.1177/1367549415585559

Abstract
This Special Issue explores the biopolitics of precarity and the self. In so doing, its aim is to critically examine the changing landscape of technologies of the self and techniques of domination in late capitalism. It brings Foucault’s work on biopolitics into conversation with recent feminist, Marxist, postcolonial, disability and queer scholarship on precarity. In a feminist tradition of thinking through relationality and ethics, this Special Issue engages with those moments when technologies of regulation, surveillance and normalization do not quite work. ‘The Biopolitics of Precarity and the Self’ analyzes recent debates on precarity and precariousness in relation to migration and labour, health and illness, and the formation of the self and collectivities. It identifies temporality and care of both the self and others as key dimensions of precarity and explores how biopolitical structures of neoliberal capitalism institutionalize precarity that exacerbates existing global and local inequalities. We therefore raise questions around what it means to live, endure, survive and make life and labour possible without doing harm to the self or others. In this sense, this Special Issue brings to the fore the temporalities, politics and ethics of what is not always recognized in biomedical practices, labour migrations, media representations, labour of the self and everyday agency. © 2015, © The Author(s) 2015.

ABSTRACT
Teaching and learning critical and anti-oppressive frameworks pose many challenges within social work as a profession invested in notions of practice, competency, helping, and benevolence. Course content that generally interrogates social works helping role and social workers identity as helpers is at times met with dismissal that it does not teach practice skills. At other times, learners paradoxically argue that material that challenges the making of the profession and their identity in fact confirms and reaffirms their professional roles. These reactions suggest that a number of actions and negotiations take place in the apparently mundane relationship between reader and text, actions that cannot solely be attributed to texts. This paper uses a Foucauldian approach to ethics to render the relationship between reader and text thinkable and problematic and to explore processes of subject formation being negotiated by readers in their contextual relationships with texts. The central argument of this paper is that by rendering the reader-text relationship thinkable, we can explore transformative and critical reading ethics that account for how power and knowledge regimes interconnect with processes of subject formation in reader-text relationships in social work.

Résumé
Cet article a pour but d’analyser la position qu’occupe la psychanalyse dans l’œuvre de Michel Foucault au moment du dépassement, opéré par le philosophe entre les années cinquante et les années soixante, de son adhésion initiale au programme de la psychiatrie existentielle vers l’élaboration de son archéologie. L’enjeu de notre étude est d’analyser le rôle qu’aurait joué dans ce passage l’approche lacanienne des psychoses, telle qu’elle fut formulée à partir du milieu des années cinquante.

Mots clés
Foucault Lacan Psychiatrie existentielle Psychanalyse Psychoses

Abstract
This paper focuses on the position and the role of psychoanalysis in Michel Foucault’s work between the 1950s and 1960s, when the philosopher criticizes his first appreciation of the existential psychiatry and begins to draw the archeological project. The aim of this study is to analyze the role that, for this project, played Lacan’s approach to the problem of psychosis as it was worked out during the 1950s.
