Kapitalistische Macht und neoliberales Regieren
Schlagworte:Foucault, Macht, Neoliberalismus, Marx, Gouvernementalität
Neoliberal political projects strive to discipline people according to principles of market and competition. "Governementality- studies" have contributed to a better understanding of strategies used in order to transform human beings into market actors or human capitalists. However, Foucault's idea of governmentality is problematic insofar as it is based on a too narrow conception of power and freedom. Relations of power in capitalist societies cannot be analysed without taking into account the uneven distribution of power resources - mainly of economic means - and Its negative effects on the freedom of action making possible the subjection of people to the rules of competition.
