Michel Foucault

    Abstract

    Michel Foucault (1926-1984) analyzes the unit of sovereignty, discipline and normalization to control 'input policy' as well as the unit of state praise, governmentality and the practice of freedom in 'output policy'.

    Michel Foucault is always discussed as a philosopher, sociologist, historian, discourse theorist, etc. Strangely, there is no picture of Foucault as a politician, although concepts of power and governance play a crucial role in his writing. An important explanation is probably the narrow mainstream-political view of politics as the study of formal institutions. Foucault has always claimed that political practice and political authority go far beyond the legitimate rule of the law. In his last years, Foucault increasingly focused on the importance and relevance of the 'political' to the structure and existence of a society. This is done in an analysis centered on the unit of sovereignty, discipline and normalization to control 'input policy' and the unit of state praise.'
