Da Comte a Foucault attraverso Canguilhem. L'avventura ermeneutica della biopolitica

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Right after the birth of biology Comte proposes the term "biocratie" to sustain that thanks to biology it will be possible to establish a new technoscientific management of life. During and after WWII Canguilhem, with his epistemological critique of biology and medicine, proposes a critique of the will to biologically normalize man. Foucault will relay on Canguilhem's positions in order to demonstrate - albeit not explicitly - that Nazist "biopolitics " is the tragic embodiment of Comte's "biocratie": the will to dominate man through the very laws of biology.
