Thinking the Problematic
Genealogies, Tracings, and Currents of a Persistent Force
This book explores central scenes and conceptual elaborations of what historically has been called "the problem" or "the problematic". The chapters contextualize the (re-)arising of this notion within the history of power and knowledge since the late 19th century, leading up to today's neocybernetic fascination with control and generalized management ideas which form a constitutive part of the power/knowledge complex of Environmentality. By way of considering modes of problematization as modes of inhabitation, the volume maps its current conceptual-political uses as well as onto-epistemological challenges. Thus, »problematization« is positioned as a critical concept.
