Thinking the Problematic. Genealogies and Explorations between Philosophy and the Sciences
This book explores central scenes and conceptual elaborations of what historically has been called "the problem" or "the problematic". The chapters contextualize the (re-)arising of this notion within the history of power and knowledge since the late 19th century, leading up to today's neocybernetic fascination with control and generalized management ideas which form a constitutive part of the power/knowledge complex of Environmentality. By way of considering modes of problematization as modes of inhabitation, the volume maps its current conceptual-political uses as well as onto-epistemological challenges. Thus, »problematization« is positioned as a critical concept.
