Slide 1

Michel Foucault

Slide 2

The Examination new system that connected information to power (p. 187) 1. changed the economy of perceivability into the practice of force "disciplinary power… is practiced through its intangibility; in the meantime it forces on those whom it subjects a standard of necessary perceivability." (p 187) "In train, the subjects must be seen; their perceivability guarantees the hold of the power that is practiced over them." (p 187) "The examination is the system by which control, rather than transmitting the indications of its strength, rather than forcing its blemish regarding its matters, holds them in an instrument of generalization." (p 187) reversal of perceivability = in sovereign power, the sovereign was seen; in disciplinary power, subjects are seen

Slide 3

The Examination 2. brings singularity into field of examination arranges people in a system of composing ; "it draws in them in an entire mass of reports that catch and settle them" ( p 189) extraordinary enrollment, documentation made conceivable to incorporate individual information into combined frameworks in a manner that… an individual could be situated in the general enlist (p 190)

Slide 4

The Examination 3. makes every individual a "case" every individual gets to be protest of portrayals and historical records "examination as the settling, on the double custom and 'logical', of individual contrasts, as the binding of every person in his own disposition… obviously demonstrates the presence of another methodology of force in which he is connected by his status to the elements, the estimations, the crevices, the "marks" that describe him and present him a defense." (p 192)

Slide 5

The examination is the focal point of techniques that constitute the person as the impact and question of force/learning (p 192) this is the manner by which people are 'made': what makes us an individual is the thing that recognizes us from others, and examination is process by which we watch and check that qualification under sovereign power, "climbing individualization" : individualization is most noteworthy if effective under disciplinary power, "sliding individualization": less capable people more subjected to disciplinary look

Slide 6

The panopticon

Slide 7

The panopticon individual is seen, however does not see the flawlessness of force renders its genuine work out (drive) superfluous "the functions, the ceremonies, the imprints by which a sovereign's surplus power was showed are futile. There is a hardware that guarantees dissymmetry, disequilibrium, distinction. Thus, it doesn't make a difference who practices control ." (p 202) "he who is subjected to a field of perceivability, and who knows it, accepts accountability for the limitations of force; he makes them play suddenly upon himself; he engraves in himself the power connection in which he all the while assumes both parts; he turns into the guideline of his own subjection ." (p 202-3)

Slide 8

We all live in the panopticon! panopticon along these lines gets to be "extraordinary and new instrument of government", pertinent to different organizations outside prison (p 207) "Panopticon… [is] planned to make [power] more monetary and more successful, it does as such not for power itself, nor for the prompt salvation of a debilitated society: its point is to reinforce the social strengths – to expand creation, to build up the economy, spread instruction, raise the level of open ethical quality; to increment and duplicate ." (p. 208) two cases of panoptic train: in the jail (remarkable teach) and in the public eye all in all (summed up observation) (p 209) truly, moved from extraordinary train to its augmentation crosswise over society

Slide 9

3 attributes of disciplinary society 1. monetary segment (pp 218-221) capacity of panopticon is to acquire practice of force at most reduced cost disciplinary power can be sorted out to expand yield, effectiveness of people over whom power is worked out (and to make them more meek) can't separate development of free enterprise from ascent of disciplinary power

Slide 10

3 attributes of disciplinary society 2. politico-juridico segment (pp 222-224) formal uniformity ↑ with teach "While the juridical frameworks characterize juridical subjects as per all inclusive standards, the controls portray, order, practice; they appropriate along a scale, around a standard, hierarchize people in connection to each other, and, if important, preclude and refute. Regardless, in the space and amid the time in which they practice their control and bring into play the asymmetries of their energy, they impact a suspension of the law that is never add up to, yet is never revoked either. Consistent and institutional as it might be, the train, in its instrument, is a " counter-law '." (p. 223)

Slide 11

3 qualities of disciplinary society 2. politico-juridico segment (pp 222-224) … train clouded inside libertarian system teach refutes equity, is a beware of balancing powers inconsistency between formal correspondence of law and the disparity of teach (recollect the citation from last time about the minor court?)

Slide 12

"The disciplinary components discharged a " corrective nature of the standard ', which is irreducible in its standards and working to the customary reformative nature of the law. The minor court that appears to sit forever in the structures of teach, and which once in a while expect the showy type of the colossal lawful mechanical assembly, must not deceive us : it doesn't bring, aside from a couple of formal leftovers, the instruments of criminal equity to the web of ordinary presence… the controls made… another working of discipline, and it was this that slowly contributed the considerable outer contraption." (p 183)

Slide 13

3 attributes of disciplinary society 2. politico-juridico "the genuine, corporal controls constituted the establishment of the formal, juridical freedoms" (p 222) delegate majority rules system can just exist on base of microspheres of force (train) teach is the supporting of popular government 3. logical (p 224-228) development of logical innovation in a general sense changes the way power is worked out

Slide 14

Comparing Foucault to different scholars What is the relationship amongst law and equity? How would we comprehend crevices between equivalent rights and unequal reality? Liberal scholars : endeavor to enhance Marx : parallel rights are a middle class lie CLS : "equivalent to male", "equivalent to white" Foucault : train to a great extent refutes lawful balance

Slide 15

What are the consequences of this new reformative nature? Corrective systems transported from correctional establishments to whole social body via "carceral archipelago" (p 298) 1. discipline moved from reaction to infractions of law, to "adjustment" of peculiarities, deviances (p 299)

Slide 16

What are the aftereffects of this new reformative nature? 2. jail delivers its own detainees "The reprobate is not outside the law; he is, from the very beginning, in the law, at the very heart of the law" (p 301) – in light of the fact that the law's motivation is to look at and identify abnormalities, it is in this examination procedure that the criminal is made "Yet it is not on the edges of society and through progressive outcasts that guiltiness is conceived, however by method for always firmly set additions, under perpetually stubborn observation, by a collection of disciplinary pressure." (p 301) crooks are accordingly not "outlaws", those outside society, but rather the individuals who are all the more completely analyzed by social foundations

Slide 17

What are the consequences of this new reformative nature? 3. makes energy to rebuff "common and honest to goodness" (p 301) "carceral pyramid offers energy to incur legitimate discipline a setting in which it gives off an impression of being free of all overabundance and all savagery." (p 302)

Slide 18

What are the consequences of this new corrective nature? 4. Ascent of the standard (p 304) "Judging" has changed: is no longer restricted to criminal equity, is all over the place (specialists, educators, social laborers, and so forth all practice normalizing expert) at same time, we timid far from perceiving their power as standardizing, rather demand it depends on science

Slide 19

What are the aftereffects of this new punitive nature? 5. Continually amplifying panopticon (or "carceral archipelago") ensures that man is "understandable", constantly subject to examination; this procedure makes present day science conceivable (p. 305) 6. To concentrate on question of canceling or improving jail is deficient; the issue is truly the "lofty ascent in the utilization of these instruments of standardization and the colossal forces which, through the multiplication of new teaches, they carry with them" (p 306) jail no longer focal site for comprehension or opposing order
