Edward McGushin [20]Edward F. McGushin [4]
  1. Foucault's Askesis: An Introduction to the Philosophical Life.Edward F. McGushin - 2007 - Northwestern University Press.
    In his renowned courses at the Collège de France from 1982 to 1984, Michel Foucault devoted his lectures to meticulous readings and interpretations of the works of Plato, Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius, among others. In this his aim was not, Edward F. McGushin contends, to develop a new knowledge of the history of philosophy; rather, it was to let himself be transformed by the very activity of thinking. Thus, this work shows us Foucault in the last phase of his (...)

    Foucault and the problem of the subject.Edward McGushin - 2005 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 31 (5-6):623-648.
    This paper examines the relevance of Foucault’s later work to debates in contemporary Continental philosophy concerning the problem of the subject. It shows that Foucault shifts attention away from the history of metaphysics and the metaphysics of the subject to an analysis of the concrete forms of institutional practice and embodiment that shape philosophical discourses. As a result, we are able to see this debate in a different light. In particular, we can grasp the deconstruction of the subject, especially as (...)

    Dream and the aesthetics of existence: Revisiting “Foucault’s ethical imagination”.Edward McGushin - 2021 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 47 (8):987-1000.
    For the later Foucault, as for the early Foucault, the dream represents a privileged disclosure of the ethics of the self, and the relation to truth. What, then, is the function of the dream in the...

    Foucault’s Cartesian Meditations.Edward F. Mcgushin - 2005 - International Philosophical Quarterly 45 (1):41-59.
    For a long time readers of Descartes’s Meditations have argued about whether or not they are to be taken as spiritual exercises. In this paper I show that the later work of Michel Foucault provides us with a new way of approaching this problem. To situate Foucault’sapproach and to reveal his originality, I summarize two influential discussions of the meditational character of Descartes’s Meditations. I then turn to the work of Foucault, give a brief explanation of his idiosyncratic definition of (...)

    The Politics of Desire: Foucault, Deleuze, and Psychoanalysis.Agustín Colombo, Edward McGushin & Geoff Pfeifer (eds.) - 2022 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    This book will gather contributions from international scholars with the aim of exploring the political reflection of Deleuze-Guattari’s and Foucault’s critical encounter with psychoanalytic thought: their possible connections, their divergences and the fields of reflection that this encounter opens, the problems and debates that lead Foucault and Deleuze to engage with psychoanalysis.

  9. The Poetic Subject: Foucault's Genealogy of Philosophy.Edward F. Mcgushin - 2002 - Dissertation, Boston College
    This dissertation explores the problematic of "care of the self" in the unpublished later work of Michel Foucault. In his major published works, Foucault studied how subjects are fabricated within relations of power and knowledge. He revealed that modern political power is a "bio-power." Its legitimacy derives from its capacity to nurture individual life. It does this by forging individuals whose bodies, capacities, pleasures, comforts, desires, etc., are intrinsically integrated into the state's productive force. One of the main techniques for (...)

    Reflections on a Critical Genealogy of the Experience of Poverty.Edward Mcgushin - 2005 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 79:117-130.
    The persistence of poverty is one of the great problems of our times. In this paper I want to show how we can use Michel Foucault’s work to recast thisproblem through a genealogy of the political rationality within which it appears. Foucault’s genealogies present us with at least three irreducible experiences of poverty: 1) the philosophical care of the self where poverty is a goal to be attained; 2) the religious sacralization of the poor and charity; and 3) the bio-political (...)

    The Role of Descartes’s Dream in the Meditations and in the Historical Ontology of Ourselves.Edward McGushin - 2018 - Foucault Studies 25:84-102.
    This paper situates the dream-hypothesis in Descartes’s First Meditation within the historical ontology of ourselves. It looks at the way in which the dream enters into and transforms Descartes’ relation to his “system of actuality.” In order to get free from his confinement within his system of actuality – an actuality defined by relations of power-knowledge, government, veridiction, and subjectivity – Descartes draws on the disruptive, negative capacity of the dream. But, while Descartes draws on the dream to get himself (...)
