The Government of Life

Judith Revel

Fordham University Press

The chapter by Revel argues that Foucault advances an affirmative biopolitics centered on the self-fashioning of subjectivity, but this “form of life” is attainable only if subjectivation is a function of nonidentities or singularities; if all naturalism is resolutely historicized; and, lastly, if “life” is entirely understood as bios and not zoe, as a product of sociality, of the creation of a relation to the other, rather than based on the metabolism with what is natural or nonsocial.

Keywords:   Subjectivity, Singularity, Naturalism, Historicism, Bios
