Description

The Deleuze Seminars is a collection of audio recordings, transcriptions, and English translations of, and supplemental materials from, the lectures French philosopher Gilles Deleuze gave during his career at the University of Paris 8.

In the "Foucault" seminar, Deleuze offers his interpretation and analysis of French philosopher Michel Foucault's work. Examining the theoretical foundations and major themes of Foucault's philosophy, Deleuze dedicates several lectures to each of what he calls the "three axes" of Foucault's thought. This seminar coincides with the publication of Deleuze's book Foucault (1986; English translation 1988).

This seminar consists of 25 lectures given from October 1985 to May 1986. Each lecture has been published as an individual dataset consisting of mp3 audio files of the recorded lecture, including an aggregate mp3 of the entire lecture, and a French transcription of the recordings available as both pdf and plain text files.
