    On Visibility and Power: An Arendtian Corrective of Foucault. [REVIEW]Neve Gordon - 2002 - Human Studies 25 (2):125-145.

Since the way in which one defines freedom informs one's understanding of the techniques that suppress, regulate, and modify behaviour, the article begins by sketching Arendt's notion of freedom, and compares this to its liberal counterpart. That discussion leads to Arendt's conception of power, whose corollary is freedom, and whose suppression amounts to control. The institutional (...)
