Focusing on the last stage of Foucault's thought, this book brings together international scholars to relaunch the critical debate on the significance of Foucault's so-called “ethical turn” and to discuss the ways in which the perspectives offered by Foucault in this period might help us to unravel modernity, giving us the tools to understand and transform our present, ethically and politically.
"Marta Faustino and Gianfranco Ferraro, along with their contributors, have provided us with what might be the definitive guide to Foucault's thinking and writing in the last five years of his life. The Late Foucault is decidedly the best first place to go on the late Foucault."
"An outstanding and timely collection, casting fresh light on Foucault's thinking in its last phase. These engaging, incisive essays provide a reappraisal of Foucault's late turn to the ethics of the ancient world, and its significance for his views on subjectivity, truth and power in the present."
