Criticism without criterion, judgement or law. From deconstructionism to Deleuze and Foucault

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Deconstructionism; Deleuze; Foucault; Neoliberalism.

The essay analyzes the crucial passage from deconstructionism to Deleuze and Foucault, where criticism is not anymore conceived of as the theorization of a truth that must be practiced by a universal subject of emancipation, such as the proletariat. The break of the normative link between theory and practice entails the end of criticism as a project: criticism is rather a mode of being and immediately living in a different way, it consists of escaping from power by moving within a field of struggle. Starting from these assumption, the author considers the relationship between this criticism and the neoliberal governmental rationality, which operates through the production of differentiations and hierarchies.
