Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France – a Foucault query

Stuart Elden ends this entry with a request for information:

So, does anyone know about Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France, or what that might be a reference to?

Progressive Geographies

In Daniel Defert’s ‘Chronologie’/’Chronology’ in Dits et écrits/A Companion to Foucault, he makes reference to a publication entitled Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France. This is in the entry for October 1973  (p. 44/55), and Defert suggests that it published some of the results of research projects conducted by CERFI under Foucault’s sponsorship – the particular project was on “the role of urban facilities in town planning”.

2. ‘Nietzsche, la génealogie, l’histoire’, in Hommage à Jean Hyppolite, Paris: PUF, 1971, pp. 145-72.

Both texts are reprinted in Dits et écrits and appear, among other places, in volume 2 of Essential Works. There is also the discussion of Nietzsche in the first of the ‘Truth and Juridical Forms’ lectures given in Rio in May 1973 (in Dits et écritsand Essential Works, Volume 3).

Now, with the publication and translation of Lectures on the Will to Know, we have the text of a lecture from April 1971, given at McGill University. This lecture is given as an appendix to the course from the Collège…
