No 844: Discipliner les autres et agir sur soi : les vies du contrôleur de gestion

Caroline Lambert () and Eric Pezet ()

Abstract: Numerous critical studies argue that control of individuals is obtained through domination. In this article, the authors focus on the design and on the development of a Panoptic organization and not on its implementation. By taking this point of view, they demonstrate the possibility of going further the disciplinary metaphor, and they underline the commitment of the subject in games of truth (Foucault, 1984b). Another main contribution relies on the specific point of view adopted to observe the Panopticon: the one of the overseer, i.e, the controller.

Keywords: Foucault; subjectivation; games of truth; controller; car industry
