Tension, Subject, Society. Philosophical Remarks on Foucault’s “Stultifera Navis”
Papazisi Editions, Athens 2014
Navis», Foucault’s privileged primary, first, extensive reference to
madness, to the history of madness, is it merely but a theme about madness? Or
is it at the same time, a privileged narration and a primary reference to the
history of tension?
question constitutes the fundamental starting point of this study, i.e. the
completely different beginning of the genealogical approach as far as it
concerns tension, onto the study of which a study is dedicated for the first
time. In the context of this study, in a totally new perspective, this of
tension and their relation to it, there is an attempt to be discussed firstly,
image, literature and also an exemplary series of social practices (: the
estrangement, the confinement, the philosophical, religious and moral
annihilation of the subject of tension).
