Person and the juridical subject in the State of prevention.

Informations and abstract

Keywords: person, juridical subject, normalizing devices, State of prevention.

The new centrality of the concept of person is often understood as a sign of the crisis of the juridical subject, formal and abstract, and as a rediscovery of concrete subjectivities and the materiality of bodies. In the contrary, this essay argues that the concept of person produces new forms of construction and classification of subjects, via the use of normalizing devices and preventive neutralization. Rather than a return to the ethical value of the person, we are therefore facing a further process of 'virtualization' of the contemporary juridical subject.
