About

My research focuses on a new reading of the thinker Michel Foucault. Under the premise that critical thinking draws a diagnosis of the present to open it to a possible transformation, I attempt to achieve what concept of transformation can bring us the work of the french philosopher. The reason  is looking for a concept of critical transformation  politically useful for us. The concept of transformation that has deeply us influenced during the two last centuries comes from the Hegelian-Marxist one, but it seems no longer works. Perhaps if we can’t change our reality is not only because of “the reality”, it’s also because of the concept of “transformation of the reality” that we use.

I also collaborate with “Espai en Blanc”, a group founded in 2002 with the goal to “become passionate about the thought process” and making “politics and life” exist together. “Espai en blanc” has published for many years an annual review which invites one to think about our present. I have been collaborating in many activities, especially in the open meetings that we have organized to discuss the problems that arises in each review.
