No 855:
"Be yourself or rather be your Brand"! care of the self as a control tool in a cosmetics firm

Claire Dambrin () and Caroline Lambert ()

Abstract: Care of the self, a technique for governing the individual in society, proves to be equally a control technique for the individual in the firm. In a firm dedicated to the cult of beauty, there is a blurring of the lines between employee and consumer individual. This blurring makes care of the self a control tool whose rising power over individuals is all the greater because it is nurtured and maintained by the individuals themselves.
