Fr. 58

November 25, 2011

Foucault and Adorno (in Surveiller et punir and Minima Moralia, respectively) come to similar conclusions about the investment of the social body by power/domination, that is, the manner in which social identity and body and personal identity and body are functions of the exercise of social power relations, be this through restraint, governance, moral policing, etc. This is especially visible in their conceptions of the totality; there is no viewpoint or individual external to this power/domination, which leaves its trace upon all viewpoints, including their own and their comprehension of this power. Yet, in so doing, they rely on entirely different systems that each would likely reject the other for certain structural reasons. (fragmented)
