Society assigns places: it pronounces verdicts and marks us for life. It puts up frontiers and establishes hierarchies between individuals and groups. The role of critical thought is to shed light on these social mechanisms and on the logic of social domination and reproduction. Through an analysis of literary, philosophical and sociological texts, Didier Eribon proposes a new theory of political subjectivity.
Didier Eribon is a professor at the School of Philosophy and Social Sciences of the University of Amiens. His books include Michel Foucault (1989, Harvard UP, 1991), Réflexions sur la question gay (1999), Retour à Reims (2009; Returning to Reims, Semiotext(e), 2013) and most recently, La société comme verdict (2013).
