The birth of political subjects: Individuals, foucault, and boundary experiences

Charles Edward Scott

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In a context of experiences in which events become apparent that encroach upon mainstream and reasonable good sense, this paper gives an account of the emergence of political subjects into public domains that make possible new knowledge and personal and institutional transformations. A statement by Simone de Beauvoir and engagement with Michel Foucault's interpretation of "limit experiences" help to orient the paper. The essay ends with a discussion of certain types of power and the birth of political subjects.
