What is a dispositif? Translated into English as “apparatus”, this term plays a crucial role in Foucault’s thought. In this episode, we explore Agamben’s genealogical treatment of this Foucauldian notion. His treatment takes him across Christian theology, Hegel, and more. Joining Craig, Adam, and Will is Yung Agamben from the D E C O D E podcast. Our goal is to understand how Agamben’s description of how apparatuses operate within Foucault’s work, and how they function strategically to direct the formation of particular subjectivities. How can one bring the “Ungovernable” to light?
