    Biopower/Capitalism Heidegger Links?

    So basically, I'm looking for cards that link Bipower and Capitalism to a Heidegger Kritik. I know how they link but I'm lacking the cards and all my searches are leading to papers that I have to buy to see. Cites would be great, cards would be even better. Thanks.

    Biopower K aff

    I want to write a biopower K aff for this topic. I know it would have been much better last year, but how feasible is it to relate it to this year's topic? Like maybe we criticize biopower exercised by both the US and China? B/c with china's human rights issues i can see some connections. And of course the US has plenty of instances of biopower. It basically would be the reason we reject using the state and our framework is that we provide the best education. Does that all sound reasonable? (I've never written a K before) Can anyone point me to any good authors to read (besides foucault and agamben, both of whom i have read) or be willing to share cards?

    How does this biopower 1ac look?

    So about a week ago I posted on this forum that I was interested in writing a biopower K aff. I've now finished the 1ac and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Can you all help me make this good? [file removed because i've gotten the feedback I need and no longer want it to be public] Here are the main things that appear to me as problems 1) The card about interdependence increasing the legitimacy of the state was ripped from a Chinese Politics DA. I did it because I had a hard time finding a good scholarly IR article to say what I wanted it to say. I think the evidence for that argument could be a lot better, so maybe i just need to spend more time looking 2) I think i need to do a better job explaining the impact of biopolitics, particularly on the Uyghur part. I also need to learn how to explain biopower more fully, instead of just repeating things like "controlling the population" or "subjugating bodies". Like I need to explain why those things are bad. Maybe throw in an impact card from one of last year's kritiks 3) The poem in the beginning doesn't serve any real purpose. I just added it because lots of K affs have poetry and I wanted to be edgy 4) I'm not sure if my arguments about American biopower serve any real purpose, especially since our advocacy is specific to china. I meant it as an illustration of legitimization, but I'm not sure if it really functions as such 5) I need a better card for framework at the end 6) a handful of cards come from people's masters theses. Im not sure how much of a problem that is Like I said on my first post, I've never written a kritik before (actually, that's not true. I did once when I was a sophomore in public forum and it was awful), so I am grateful for any and all feedback. Thanks!

    Biopower and Heidegger?

    So I have been wondering for next years topic, can I run Biopower and Heidegger? I really like biopower and I was wondering if it conflicts. I also really want to know what else can be ran with the K.

    Foucault

    Didn't see much when I searched, but could someone please give me an quick summary of Foucault's philosophy and possible direct me to good books of his and/or books explaining his ideas? Thanks.
  9. For the Buddhism K, I don't mean the economics shit on openev - I want the generic stuff with a link of desire. I have a lot of race/id pol stuff I cut that I'll trade. I'll take whatever is the easiest to understand and most applicable in LD for Psychoanalysis K.

    Help

    Hello, I was cutting links for a biopower K when I came across this card. Can someone explain it to me? Nadesan 2008 (Marjia is an Associate Professor of Social and Behavioral sciences at Arizona State University “Governmentality Biopower and Everday Life” pg.5) Foucault argued that biopower involves both the life politics of population and the harnessing and disciplining of corporeal bodies. Although his later work emphasized the former expressions of biopower in order to address power’s productivity and circulation, discipline and sovereignty remain important dimensions of his approach to social anlaysis. Accordingly, it is my contention that analyses of how biopower operates must remain attuned to the systems of marginalization, exclusion, and discipline that supplement liberal technologies of the self implicated in the production of self-regulating agents. This emphasis on how biopower operates as a technology of power that both privileges and marginalizes, empowers and disciplines, sets this book apart from more optimistic formulations of biopwoer as a technology of optimization. Contemproary analyses of power and control must look beyond the disciplines and surveillance technologies of enclosed institutional spaces. Foucault (2007) argued that governmentality extends analysis beyond the inside of disciplinary insitiutions to the outside from spefiic institutional functions to dispersed, networked technologies of power that circulate across all domains of social life. Foucault’s shifted analysis to the outside because he saw historical shifts in the technologies and operations of social power. Gilles Deleuze (1992) coined the idea of “societies of control” (Deleuze, 1992, p.4) to address contemporary forms of power that circulate dynamically, producing individuals who experience themselves as internally fragmented, or dividuated, by dispersed networks (see also Hardt & Negri, 2000). Circulating networks often involve computerized strategies of surveillance, representation, and control, thereby requiring individuals to succumb to historically novel surveillance modes and disciplines while adopting new kinds of technologies of the self requiring continuous self-modulation.. Deleuze argued that market operations and logics have gained disproportionate power within contemporary societies through the iconic figure of the corporation, which encourages competition among individuals while dividing each person “within” with its imperatives for self-modulation (p.5). The corporation and financial capital circulate almost without limit, exacerbating old social divisions while also producing new forms of inclusion and exclusion. My work provides a genealogoy of the new societies of control and their attendant global market networks in order to explain the dispersion of neoliberal governmentality across social fields that older liberal governmentalities presented and constituted as distinct. Marketized neoliberal governmentalities increasingly shape the problem-solution frames and techonologies organizing conduct within state apparatuses and across everytday “private” life. Of particular interest for this project are the ways biopowers operations are transformed by market-oriented neoliberal govnernmentailiteis. Thus, this book emphasized how neoliberal market logics and technologies present particular biopolitical problematic and opportunities for state, market, and private actors while, simultaneously, shaping governmental approaches to representing and addressing these problematic. In what follows, I briefly introduce my approach to governmentality before outlining this book’s organization across chapters.

    Biopower Alt

    I'm planning on writing my first biopower K for the new LD topic (I do LD), and need some help with the alt. Most of the alts I've seen are incoherent postmodern vocabulary or some bullshit like "vote neg". Whats the best alt to run to a biopower K (I'm cool with floating PIKs too)
