Re: [Foucault-L] Foucault

yes, indeed, because the idea of the body as site of regulation is directely derived from his ideas of normality and normalization in medicine and medicalization. especially see The Birth of the Clinique, his Brazilian lectures on medicalization and health care and his lectures (Cours) of 1970 until 1975.
The idea of normalization as something which is derived from Law (in Discipline and Punish) is developed later on.

Good day to you,

I have just recently joined the group and have a question regarding
Foucault. Is there anybody that can help me please -

Question: Michael Foucault has contributed a number of concepts regarding
the body as a site for regulation. Do you think these concepts are evident
in a contemporary society and health care?
