The problem of an ethical subject in M. Foucault’s philosophy


We consider the reconstruction of an ethical subject concept in the later works of M. Foucault. We characterize the central ethical concepts – “self-care”, “aesthetics of existence”. We denote the basic ethical principles of free subject included in social reality based on the Foucauldian analysis of subjectivity. In this study, we pay special attention to the principle of “self-care” in the perspective of aesthetic reality. We conclude that M. Foucault's concept of an ethical subject presupposes the possibility of a free personality existence, based on an ethical basis embodied in a certain form of existence.
