What Can a Course Do?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Deleuze; Foucault; Microphysics of Power; Forces; Control.

The paper attempts to analyze the course that Deleuze gave on power in Foucault, emphasizing the differences of this text with the book "Foucault", also written by Deleuze. Through a tour of the core concepts of the course - microphysics, strategy, outside, biopolitics, control and resistance - and a focus on the strategic role of the active participation of the students, the essay wants to underline the importance of teaching in practicing philosophy. In this sense, Deleuze's classes on Foucault are not only didactic material, but useful heuristic tools to deepen a conceptual relationship - that of Deleuze with Foucault - that still remains to be explored in its problematicity.
