Term of the day

government

[B]y government Foucault meant not so much the political or administrative structurs of the modern state as 'the way in which the conduct of individuals or of groups might be directed: the government of children, of souls, of communities, of families, of the sick.... To govern, in this sense, is to structure the possible field of action of others' (Burchell et al, 1991, cited by Smart, 1992). (Foucault's afterword in Dreyfus and Rabinow, p.221)
