This innovative book explores the application of Michel Foucault's work to the field of psychology. Throughout his work Foucault develops a powerful critique of the uses of psychological knowledge and practice in modern disciplinary society, and he offers a trenchant series of methodological injunctions, an 'analytics of power', that makes a reformulation of 'the psychological' possible. Aware of this double priority - of the critical and methodological import of these ideas - this book introduces and applies Foucault's most important concepts and procedures. Drawing on Foucault's College de France lectures, the book argues for a historical, genealogical analysis of Foucault's work and examines a wide range of important social issues such as racism, sexuality, paedophilipa, subjectivity and power. Now available in paperback, this book will appeal to those in psychology, social and political science, human geography, cultural studies and philosophy.
