Abstract

In his book, Fatigue Society (Müdigkeitsgesellschaft, Matthes & Seitz, 2010, English edition in preparation for Stanford University Press), the Korean cultural theorist, Byung-Chul Han, who teaches at UdK, Berlin, claims that contemporary society no longer responds to the dictates of discipline. Today it is ruled by achievement. Citizens, in fact, are no longer subject to the various apparatuses of obedience that society has imposed on it, as Foucault so rightly observed. Rather, they have become self-entrepreneurs.
