The essay compares Lyotard’s vision of the post-modern with the themes of the power and the “governmentality” developed by Foucault, which are basically different even though there are some documented convergences. The hinge of Lyotard’s discourse is the difference between paralogy and system, with which the technical-scientific development joins the will of using the same development as anti-system. As far as he is concerned, Foucault hinges on the relation man-power in order to set on new basis the “possibility” of en ethical behaving as well as an alternative political project. Renewing the principles and the questions of the Aufklärung, he seems to offer much more up-to-date instruments to cope with the present days.

Abstract

The essay compares Lyotard’s vision of the post-modern with the themes of the power and the “governmentality” developed by Foucault, which are basically different even though there are some documented convergences. The hinge of Lyotard’s discourse is the difference between paralogy and system, with which the technical-scientific development joins the will of using the same development as anti-system. As far as he is concerned, Foucault hinges on the relation man-power in order to set on new basis the “possibility” of en ethical behaving as well as an alternative political project. Renewing the principles and the questions of the Aufklärung, he seems to offer much more up-to-date instruments to cope with the present days.
