Intro to Biopower

Recommended Posts

I want to try to learn more about biopower (and eventually probably neuropower) but idk what I'm doing. I'm kind of drowning in the lit lol. I'm pretty sure I should read some Foucault and Agamben but where do I start? Which works should I familiarize myself with?

Start with simple online summaries and wikipedia articles, use that basic understanding to look through debate files and figure out what arguments you're interested in learning more about, go back and read through the sources for those cards, and then read the major authors or authors writing about their work.

I know from experience that just sitting down and trying to read through a major work of a philosopher you're not familiar with is counter-productive and a waste of time.
