De l'écriture à la vie : généalogie politique du style et de l'êthos foucaldien

Abstract : Is the project of Michel Foucault built around an anti-normativ ethic and politics? If yes, which practices are involved in? And how the way to deal with, let us draw up the strategies of resistance and freedom against internalized effects of the power? Dealing with genealogy of style and foucaldien êthos actively immerses you in the multiplicity which is composing your life. Becoming yourself in a balancing act the ethic of the transformation links 'devenir autre' to 'souci de soi', 'dé-subjectivation' to 'subjectivation'. These two lines of the subjectivity build the two possible ways of resistance against the effects of the power; and are focussed on a central notion for Foucault: the historical and updated diagnosis. Beyond the traditional distinction between theory et praxis, a specific way of being (êthos) is observed when someone is writing or reading a book, speaking in front of an audience, moving or just doing something (style). Balancing between the desire to find is own way and the risk of loosing himself, Foucault proposes some thinking practices as drawing lines or musical rhythms more than lessons of life.
