  Reconstructing history allows us to realise that bodies have not always been valued in the same way; a capital that is linked to bodies (sexual capital) exists as a consequence of transformations in the field of health, of relationships between social classes as well as the general conception of the conditions required to be an accomplished person. These changes allow us to identify possibilities for transformation. Because even though everybody should be able to express themselves through their bodies, this is far from reality as there are certain requirements that have been set which verge on the pathological.

A fundamental discussion on rights, transparency and public data access which clearly has ethical consequences in the field of medicine. “In a context of political tension, ideological polarisation and pandemic, the Spanish Organic Law on the Regulation of Euthanasia has once again put the spotlight on medically assisted death.

“Ir a clase con Foucault”, by José Luis Moreno Pestaña (Coordinator) He rushes into the amphitheatre and gets to his chair. He puts the recorders aside to make room for his documents on the table. He takes off his jacket, lights up the lamp and sits down. He turns his gaze up as his glasses reflect the brightness of the light and he starts speaking.

Thus begins another of his lectures in the Collège of France. This book, written by José Luis Moreno Pestaña together with prestigious researchers and internationally renowned experts in Michael Foucault’s thinking, is not just a trip to the lectures that one…
