Following the release in Russian of the main course Pierre Bourdieu's "the state" and the fundamental research Dean Mitchell "Pravitelei" project "Bitter" has published an interview
"the State is an illusion"
sociologist Alexander Bikbov about how Foucault and Bourdieu have become a new Lenin
the Goal of this text is to clarify a complex matter of law and governance, addressing some of the findings of the two absolutely key for today approaches. Thanks for the questions, Stas Naranovich, who acted as the intermediary in clarity. Here are the key themes, detailed in an interview with all the necessary details:
Historical Ethnography of the state Pierre Bourdieu
— People institutions against ratings citation
Bureaucratic impartiality and corruption
— the State after state
— the Three pillars of pravitelstv by Michel Foucault and Mitchell Dean
— the Illiberal side of pravitelstv
— Foucault: an analyst or moralist?
On the way from the past to the present a critical test, of course, subjected to date:
"...pushed to the limit the logic of pravitelstv when the state acts as a commercial application to individual or organized enterprise is an enterprise society. It seems, until we came to that line too closely. But the intertwining of sovereign and liberal logics in the structure of any modern state is quite tangible consequences today. Foucault describes (and makes Dean even more tangible) of interest, underlying pravitelei as violent. What connects the analysis of pravitelstv with the problems, which expounds Bourdieu within his critical history of the state. Just as any bureaucratic state creates its excluded, an essential tool mode pravitelei is a police state. Historically, the police state is not a mere repressive machine that absolyutiziruyut safety and enforces it in favor of the ruling. Is a machine that provides the most basic goal of pravitelstv: prosperity, security and health of the population. It drives well-meaning people through freedom, and excluded — through discipline. And here we touch one of the key risks of pravitelstv — social racism. ...
One of the objectives of pravitelstv to hard-working classes became more and less dangerous. Exactly the same does today the task of the Russian neo-liberal strategy: to increase productivity, to increase the number of initiative and the self-employed, to reduce the number of needy and dependent. In a positive view of the thesis as follows: everyone should try to earn and participate in the universal competition, it wakes up the creative power, the will to wealth, the responsibility for their own health and personal safety. But at the same thesis there is a negative view: who is not involved in the competition and the race to productivity, should be subject to sanctions. And it's not just about the ridiculous "tax on parasitism", which is currently being discussed in the Russian government. Talking about much more sophisticated tools, such as psychiatrical unemployment in France or Britain, and the obligation to be adventurous in exchange for benefits. In other words, as the bureaucratic state, described by Bourdieu, prevailest creates its own excluded, and this category is equally extensive. Be subject to fine, eviction, denial of benefits, that is to be permanently displayed beyond trustworthy, and committed to the prosperity of the majority is the same negative tool pravitelei as low school grades in the development of basic cultural codes in the bureaucratic state."
