“A Zone of Indistinction” – A Critique of Giorgio Agamben’s Con-cept of Biopolitics
Thomas Lemke
Outlines : Critical Practice Studies , 2005,
Abstract: This article reconstructs Giorgio Agamben’s concept of biopolitics and discusses his claim that the camp is the “matrix of modernity”. While this thesis is more plausible than many of his critics do admit, his work is still characterised by diverse theoretical problems. My critique will concentrate on the legalistic concept of biopolitics that Agamben endorses and on his formalistic idea of the state. This reading of Agamben leads to a surprising result. By focussing on the repressive dimensions of the state and the sovereign border between life and death, Agamben’s work remains committed to exactly that juridical perspective that he so vividly criticizes.
The Body Politic: An Introduction
Jonathan D. Moreno
Theoretical & Applied Ethics , 2011,
Abstract: Editor's Note: Bioethics, as Jonathan Moreno points out, is often observed to have become "politicized." In an effort to exploresome of the implications of this assessment, Moreno decided two years ago to write a book that would draw on his experiencesin the academic and policy worlds. In that book, The Body Politic (Bellevue Literary Press, 2011), Moreno uses his unique takeon the history, philosophy and sociology of science, political philosophy, ethics, and science policy, to explore what he callsthe "new biopolitics." Theoretical & Applied Ethics is honored to present an adaptation of the Introduction to that book, whichwe believe will further establish Moreno as a leading voice in our discipline.

Topologias de poder: a análise de Foucault sobre o governo político para além da "governamentalidade"
Collier, Stephen J.;
Revista Brasileira de Ciência Política , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-33522011000100010
Abstract: the publication of michel foucault's lectures at the collège de france in the late 1970s has provided new insight into crucial developments in his late work, including the return to an analysis of the state and the introduction of biopolitics as a central theme. according to one dominant interpretation, these shifts did not entail a fundamental methodological break; the approach foucault developed in his work on knowledge/power was simply applied to new objects. the present article argues that this reading - which is colored by the overwhelming privilege afforded to discipline and punish in secondary literature - obscures an important modification in foucault's method and diagnostic style that occurred between the introduction of biopolitics in 1976 (in society must be defended) and the lectures of 1978 (security, territory, population) and 1979 (birth of biopolitics). foucault's initial analysis of biopolitics was couched in surprisingly epochal and totalizing claims about the characteristic forms of power in modernity. the later lectures, by contrast, suggest what i propose to call a 'topological' analysis that examines the 'patterns of correlation' in which heterogeneous elements - techniques, material forms, institutional structures and technologies of power - are configured, as well as the redeployments through which these patterns are transformed. i also indicate how attention to the topological dimension of foucault's analysis might change our understanding of key themes in his late work: biopolitics, the analysis of thinking, and the concept of governmentality.
