POGREBINSCHI, Thamy. Foucault, beyond disciplinary power and biopower. Lua Nova [online]. 2004, n.63, pp. 179-201. ISSN 0102-6445. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-64452004000300008.
The article analyses Foucault's concept of power in its genealogical phase. It seeks to identify a specific and unnamed content, which differentiates itself from and by the well known categories of disciplinary power and biopower. Its main argument relies on the possibility of identifying a foucauldian concept of power whose substance, once avoiding the ideas of repression and law, turns out to be productive, positive and, particularly, emancipatory.
Keywords : Michel Foucault; Power; Emancipation.
