          Abstract

          Este texto propone una genealogía de la biopolítica a partir del pensamiento de Michel Foucault y en tanto que noción filosófico-polltica, para lo cual parte no sólo de la noción de política, sino también y principalmente de la de vida. La hipótesis del texto es la siguiente: Para entender lo que biopolítica significa hay que tomar en serio el constato por parte de Foucault de una noción de vida indeterminada que es correlato de las técnicas de poder-saber. Esta noción de vida surge en la ruptura epistémica en torno a 1800, y lleva a una apertura de la noción de biopolítica bajo el nombre de gubernamentalidad, en tanto que la vida no es sólo el objeto de la biopolítica, sino que también le sirve de modelo para su funcionamiento.

          Translated abstract

          This text proposes a genealogy of biopolitics based on Michel Foucault's thought, and on an understanding of it as a philosophico-political notion. In order to elaborate this genealogy, the text takes as its starting point not only politics but also life, as the second component of the term. The hypothesis is the following: To understand what biopolitics means, we have to take seriously Foucault's assertion of an indetermination of life, as the correlate of power and knowledge. This notion emerges in the epistemic break that takes place around 1800 and that entails the opening up of the notion of biopolitics under the name of govemmentality, implying that life is not only the object of biopolitics but also serves as its model.
