Filosofía del riesgo

seguridad, precaución y neoliberalismo

  • Luis Diego Fernández

Abstract

The aim of this article is to frame François Ewald’s political philosophy into contemporary thought through three central axes: the Providence State’s analytics and the problematic of security, the reflection around precaution in contemporary politics and Michel Foucault’s philosophy lecture around liberalism and neoliberalism. These three work areas (security, precaution and neoliberalism) are tied together by the Ewaldian notion of risk. It will be argued that François Ewald’s intelectual project continues the Foucauldian reflection around the liberal governmentality in the 19th century and expand it to 21st century with the reelaboration of the government of populations underpinned by the concept of risk. The development of this gubernmentality of risk from the insurance and precaution model of François Ewald leds to a liberal lecture of the Foucauldian analytic of the Naissance de la biopolitique (Cours in the Collège de France, 1978-1979) where liberalism, as the general frame of biopolitics, is constituted by the relation between liberty and security.
