Discipline is a generative power in that it produces docile and productive bodies. Regulation is generative in that it produces a healthy and vigorous social body (147) through its administration and optimization of life (137). Initially it had been the bourgeoisie that affirmed itself through its sex, which ‘appeared to be the source for an entire capital for the species to draw from’. It was believed that if sexual perversions were permitted, the hereditary stock of the class-race would degenerate (118).
Foucault follows this lead by investigating the ascetic practices of Greek and Hellenist times as techniques of the self. Another feature of Nietzsche’s aesthetics that Foucault adopts is his valorization of creative action rather than Kant’s contemplation of what is beautiful or sublime (Nietzsche, 1956:238). Artistic creativity through ascetic discipline is, for Nietzsche, the embodiment of the will to power (242). Arts of the self are empowering in that one must give oneself style in order to withstand the constant impact of subjecting forces.
As in Nietzsche’s agonistic contest, the point is to prevent the solidification of strategic relations into states of domination. It is the agonism of permanent resistance that guarantees freedom (1982a:222–3). As Thiele (1990:919–21) suggests, Foucault’s politics lean toward a radical, agonistic democracy in which liberal freedoms are valued as the necessary conditions for the practice of strategic games of liberty. However, before we reach discussions of Foucault’s affirmative politics, the next chapters examine his oppositional politics, which focus on the constraining limits of present knowledge and subjectivity.
