THEORIZING POWER: CONCLUSION
from last class:
GOVERNMENTALITY, the third kind of power Foucault talked about (in addition to discipline and
normativity). It is a remix of three historical models of rule: PASTORAL, POLICE, AND DIPLIMATICO-
all about the NEWAND IMPROVED SOCIETY
ORIENTED TO THE FUTURE, not the present.
DISPOSITIFS of governmentality stabilize in particular institutional sites over time, until a new "event' is
identiﬁed, and new programmes are installed (around and around)
where there is power, there is resistance!
resistance is doing otherwis▯.
ROSE modiﬁed this thesis of governmentality by talking about ADVANCED LIBERALISM: governing us
through our 'free choices' by delimiting the ﬁeld of what people can choose from.
governing at MOLECULAR SITES, sﬁft from concern with the population or 'society'; advanced liberalism
combines governmental programmes with economic devices: ie management, audit
- ie in medicine, increasing concern with how much treatment costs
