Sample text

Gordon 1991, 15) Here, Colin Gordon makes liberalism into a quasi-metaphysical idea, embodied in haphazard apparatuses of security that respond to no other logic except that of the immediate moment, and thus decides to ignore that liberalism’s “will to govern” is performed within strictly delimited discursive frameworks that are anything but accidental. This form of querying liberalism is central to one of Nikolas Rose’s (1996) essays on contemporary government that attempts to summarize and conclude the seminal work on the topic both by Rose (the first edition of Governing the Soul [Rose 1999b] appeared in 1989) and by Rose and Peter Miller (1992).

It then proceeds to discuss why the dominant conceptualizations of liberalism as governmentality failed to achieve their theoretico-political potential as critiques of our governmental order. This analysis of governmentality studies also proposes a genealogical analysis of liberalism as event. The aim is to historicize the formation of liberal ideas about the good and the true in relation to the historically concomitant tactical shift in the discourses and power relations that define modernity in the West: science, colonialism, racism, eugenics, and so on.

We can say that foundational assumptions are the principle of order of liberalism, its primary or organizing logic, and thus belong to an ontoepistemic stratum underneath the theoretical constructions of the programmatic governing discourses. Then, this discussion proposes the following theme: historically, liberal governing emerges within a formative relation with heterogeneous discourses about the good and the truth that can, very tentatively, be lumped under the term Enlightenment or modernity.
