“It turns out that we live in a world in which it is indeed quite easy to recognize the contingency of the self. But it is quite another thing, and a very difficult one at that, to engage in the loving labor of reworking the contingencies that we have become.”
Colin Koopman, 2013, Genealogy as Critique: Foucault and the Problems of Modernity, Indiana University Press.
Beautiful. I’m all for this kind of project. Yes, we’re structured but also we have the task of remaking ourselves. Thanks to Colin and Clive for this post.
