    Modern Templates of Happiness: Performing Spiritualism and Psychotechnics in Denmark.Peter Triantafillou & Afonso Moreira - 2005 - History of the Human Sciences 18 (2):87-109.
    Inspired by Michel Foucault’s notion of subjugated knowledge, this paper elaborates an analytical framework seeking to unsettle the authority of contemporary psychology. This framework focuses on the performative dimension of psychology and other ‘psy-regimes’, namely the practices and actions that may be undertaken on the basis of these forms of knowledge. We probe this framework by exploring the emergence, utilization and demise of spiritualism and psychotechnics in Denmark. On the basis of this framework, we argue that the rise and fall (...)

This article compares the critical potential of French pragmatic sociology and Foucauldian-inspired genealogy. We argue that both approaches offer viable critiques of contemporary forms of power. Yet, whereas the critique of (...)

    Histories and Freedom of the Present: Foucault and Skinner.Naja Vucina, Claus Drejer & Peter Triantafillou - 2011 - History of the Human Sciences 24 (5):0952695111415176.
    This article compares the ways in which Michel Foucault’s and Quentin Skinner’s historical analyses seek to unsettle the limits on present forms of freedom. We do so by comparing their ways of analysing discourse, rationality and agency. The two authors differ significantly in the ways they deal with these three phenomena. The most significant difference lies in their ways of addressing agency and its relationship to power. Notwithstanding these differences, the historical analyses of both authors seek to problematize the ways (...)
