October 22, 1985 to May 27, 1986

After Michel Foucault's death from AIDS on June 25, 1984, Deleuze decided to devote an entire year of his seminar to a study of Foucault's writings. Deleuze analyses in detail what he took to be the three "axes" of Foucault's thought: knowledge, power, and subjectivation. The seminar led to the publication of Deleuze's book Foucault (Paris: Minuit, 1986), which subsequently appeared in an English translation by Seán Hand (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1988).

This seminar consists of 25 lectures given from October 1985 to May 1986.
