    New Materialisms: Foucault and the 'Government of Things'.Thomas Lemke - 2015 - Theory, Culture and Society 32 (4):3-25.
    The article explores the perspectives of Foucault’s notion of government by linking it to the debate on the ‘new materialism’. Discussing Karen Barad’s critical reading of Foucault’s work on the body and power, it points to the idea of a ‘government of things’, which Foucault only briefly outlines in his lectures on governmentality. By stressing the ‘intrication of men and things’, this theoretical project makes it possible to arrive at a relational account of agency and ontology, going beyond the anthropocentric (...)

    Foucault's analysis of modern governmentality: a critique of political reason.Thomas Lemke - 2019 - New York: Verso.
    Tracking the development of Foucault's key concepts Lemke offers the most comprehensive and systematic account of Michel Foucault's work on power and government from 1970 until his death in 1984. He convincingly argues, using material that has only partly been translated into English, that Foucault's concern with ethics and forms of subjectivation is always already integrated into his political concerns and his analytics of power. The book also shows how the concept of government was taken up in different lines of (...)

    Eine Kritik der politischen Vernunft: Foucaults Analyse der modernen Gouvernementalität.Thomas Lemke - 1997 - Berlin: Argument Verlag.
    Der Begriff der Regierung, den Foucault vor allem in den weitgehend unveroffentlichten Vorlesungen der Jahre 1978 und 1979 am College de France entwickelt hat, liefert den Schlussel zum Verstandnis seines Spatwerks. NIcht mehr Recht und Krieg, sondern Fuhrung und Hegemonie bilden die zentralen Bezugspunkte. FOucault vertritt die These, daSS die "Genealogie des modernen Staates" und die "Genealogie des modernen Subjekts" zusammengehoren. FOucaults Analyse der modernen Gouvernementmentalitat darf gerade heute Aktualitat beanspruchen. ANhand des liberalen Denkens zeigt er, wie die Selbstregulationsfahigkeit von (...)

    Critique and Experience in Foucault.Thomas Lemke - 2011 - Theory, Culture and Society 28 (4):26-48.
    It is widely known that by the end of the 1970s, Foucault had begun to refer to ‘experience’ to account for his intellectual trajectory and to redirect the work on The History of Sexuality. However, the interest in experience also decisively shaped Foucault’s analysis of the ‘critical attitude’ that he explicitly started to address at about the same time. The article argues that Foucault’s notion of critique is informed by a specific reading and understanding of ‘experience’. Experience is conceived of (...)

    An Alternative Model of Politics? Prospects and Problems of Jane Bennett’s Vital Materialism.Thomas Lemke - 2018 - Theory, Culture and Society 35 (6):31-54.
    This article discusses the basic arguments and important achievements of Jane Bennett’s vital materialism, as well as some problems and limitations of this theoretical perspective. It first analyzes the ontological underpinnings of Bennett’s materialist account and presents two examples she uses to illustrate the notion of a ‘force of things’. The paper then addresses central conceptual and analytic problems of Bennett’s account. The notion of an all-encompassing ‘vitality of matter’ is insufficient to explain the relationality of matter; it is also (...)

    « Marx sans guillemets » : Foucault, la gouvernementalité et la critique du néolibéralisme.Thomas Lemke - 2004 - Actuel Marx 36 (2):13-26.
    « Marx without Quotation-Marks » : Foucault, Governability, and the Critique of Neoliberalism. The « micro-physics of power » that Foucault proposed in the beginning of the 1970s for the analysis of power relations encountered two serious theoretical problems. It did not sufficiently explain processes of subjectivation and lacked an adequate concept of the state. The problematics of government that Foucault finally developed provides a solution to these problems. It offers a new theoretical perspective on power since it underlines that (...)

    Beyond genetic discrimination. Problems and perspectives of a contested notion.Thomas Lemke - 2005 - Genomics, Society and Policy 1 (3):1-19.
    In the recent past a number of empirical studies provided evidence that increasing genetic knowledge leads to new forms of exclusion, disadvantage and stigmatisation. As a consequence, many states have inaugurated special legislation to fight "genetic discrimination".This article focuses on some theoretical, normative and practical problems in the scientific and political debate on genetic discrimination. It puts forward the thesis that the existing antidiscrimination approach is based on the implicit idea that genes are the essence of (human) life. Since genes (...)

    Biological Citizenship Reconsidered: The Use of DNA Analysis by Immigration Authorities in Germany.Thomas Lemke & Torsten Heinemann - 2014 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 39 (4):488-510.
    In recent years, there has been an intense debate about the concept of “biological” or “genetic citizenship.” The growing literature on this topic mostly refers to the importance of patients’ associations, disease advocacy organizations, and self-help groups that are giving rise to new forms of subjectivation and collective action. The focus is on the extension of rights, the emergence of new possibilities of participation, and the choice-enhancing options of the new genetics. However, this perspective tends to neglect the potential for (...)

    "A slap in the face". An exploratory study of genetic discrimination in Germany.Thomas Lemke - 2009 - Genomics, Society and Policy 5 (2):1-18.
    Over the past 20 years, a series of empirical studies in different countries have shown that the increase in genetic knowledge is leading to new forms of exclusion, disadvantaging and stigmatisation. The term "genetic discrimination" has been coined to refer to a (negative) differential treatment of an individual on the basis of what is known or assumed about his or her genetic makeup. Reported incidents2 include difficulties in finding or retaining employment, problems with insurance policies and difficulties with adoption.So far, (...)

    Finnish people's attitudes towards biomedical research and its sponsorship.Thomas Lemke, Theo Papaioannou, Lyn Turney, Elina Hemminki, Aaro Tupasela, Piia Jallinoja, Arja J. Aro, Karoliina Snell, Sinikka Sihvo & Almut Caspary - 2009 - Genomics, Society and Policy 5 (2):1-13.
    The purpose of the research was to study Finnish people's attitudes towards biomedical research and whether the research sponsor makes a difference to those attitudes. A survey questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 25-64 years old. Respondents had a positive attitude towards biomedical research and there were only small variations by population group. When asked whether one's own clinical blood samples could be used in scientific biomedical research, 84 per cent of the respondents would allow it. The most (...)

    Conceptualising Suspended Life: From Latency to Liminality.Thomas Lemke - 2023 - Theory, Culture and Society 40 (6):69-86.
    The article focuses on the ability of some animals and plants to respond to changing environmental conditions by temporarily suspending metabolic processes. In contemporary biology, this state between life and death is commonly labelled ‘cryptobiosis’, combining the Greek kryptos (hidden, concealed, secret) with biōsis (mode of life). I argue that the notion of ‘cryptobiosis’ does not account sufficiently for the processual and relational dimensions of ametabolic life. The article advances a related but different concept, which better addresses this liminal state (...)
