  • Product Description
 

In the 1970s French philosopher, social theorist and historian of ideas Michel Foucault coined the term “biopower” referring to state's command over its citizens to promote their health and comfort through systems of control, such as morality and hygiene in order to build physically and mentally healthy society. Today the achievements in the field of genetic engineering and advancement in biotechnologies rise concerns about the potential harm brought by new possibilities to exercise biopower at genetic level. Learn more about the concept of biopower as well as biographies of Michel Foucault and other scholars that use the concept in their theories in this book.
