Foucault's manuscripts on phenomenology (1950s) at BnF archive: a digital approach to the edition

Project description

Digitalising Foucault’s unpublished manuscripts

French philosopher and historian of ideas, political activist and literary critic Michel Foucault (1926–1984) is one of the most cited researchers across all fields. Unpublished manuscripts of the 1950s and the early 1960s on various subjects, from phenomenology and anthropology to psychology and psychopathology, were collected at the Bibliothèque nationale de France Archive. The EU-funded EDIFOU project will organise, digitally index and disseminate these manuscripts, which are unknown today. This new corpus will be a reference work in the field of humanities. The documents are part of Foucault’s early writings. The archives will offer new original inputs for researchers to discover Foucault’s ideas and also to assess their impact on humanism, diversity, gender and biopolitics.
