Gilles Deleuze's "Postscript on Societies of Control"
In this episode, Craig, Matt, Will, and Adam return to Deleuze’s essay on the society of control. There are some crucial questions to ask: What is the nature of control? How does the control society differ from the society of discipline that Foucault identified in his work prior? Are we living in a control society, or some kind of hybrid? This work is short, but dense. The gang reflects on just how prescient some of Deleuze’s descriptions of these new technologies are. It is all to try to get to one simple, but essential question: What tools of resistance are at a subject’s disposal under a society of control?
