簡介

Abstract

This collective book proposes to re-examine and explore the paradox of modernity through the triad structure of biopolitics, ethics and subjectivation, as it has served as an effective analytic tool for Western cultures (Foucault, Agamben, Negri...). The authors ask themselves if this framework can be tested on as varied cultural conditions as those in Asia, South Asia, Africa, Latin America or Eastern Europe.

 

This collective book proposes to reexplore the paradox of modernity through the triad structure of biopolitics, ethics and subjectivation, as it has served as a very effective analytic tool for Western cultures (Foucault, Agamben, Negri Coming from different parts of the world, the authors ask themselves if this framework can be tested on as varied cultural conditions as those in East Asia, South Asia, Eastern Europe.

For example, could it help us to analyse the increasing population of migrant labors in the rapidly globalized age, or to account for the multiplied social borders through the migration policy and population control? What might be clarified or blinded if we use (or not) this analytic The texts included in this book have been presented at the Conference “Biopolitics, Ethics and Subjectivation” held at the National Chiao University (Hsinchu,Taiwan) in June 2009.

This book is published in partnership with National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan.
