About this book

According to Michel Foucault, the 'history of the present' should constitute the starting point for any enquiry into the past. This collection considers the continued relevance of Foucault's work for thinking the history of our present and includes essays and interviews by Judith Butler, Judith Revel, Mark Neocleous, and Tiziana Terranova.

Reviews

“The essays in this volume explore many interesting and important themes and events and show how Foucauldian analytics may be used to understand and interpret the history of our many presents. ... the essays in this volume are a valuable contribution to those looking to use Foucault’s concepts and methodology to understand contemporary situations. Each offers us new ways of understanding, theorizing and resisting the power relations still in operation today.” (Jordan Liz, marxandphilosophy.org.uk, August, 2016)
