Product Description & Reviews

Addresses a surprisingly overlooked Foucauldian conundrum: what is the logical relationship between modern law and power? Michel Foucault (1926-84) was a French philosopher, social theorist and political thinker. Jacopo Martire investigates the development of modern law in conjunction with what Foucault termed biopolitical forms of power. He gives you a much-needed genealogical analysis of the modern legal phenomenon, opening new avenues for Foucauldian approaches to law. Critically engages with current Foucauldian literature in the fields of law, philosophy and politics to give you an engaging overview of the field. Surveys the development of the modern legal phenomenon in an innovative and original way. Demonstrates the critical limits of both liberal and radical approaches to law. Develops the potential of Foucault's theory in analysing the modern legal phenomenon, opening up new avenues for research.
