The economic changes and growing popular dissent of the 18th century made necessary a more systematic control over the individual members of society, and this in effect meant a change from punishment, which chastised the body, to reform, which touched the soul. Foucault shows the development of the Western system of prisons, police organizations, administrative and legal hierarchies for social control - and the growth of disciplinary society as a whole. He also reveals that between school, factories, barracks and hospitals all share a common organization, in which it is possible to control the use of an individual's time and space hour by hour.Hide synopsis

Michel Foucault has the unique ability to call into question entire categories of thought. In this work, my favorite of his series, he raises the question of how we became a disciplinary society. He traces theory of punishment from the public executions of the middle ages through to the penal procedures of the present day, demonstrating the effectiveness of disciplinary power and its application beyond punishment, to the rest of societal organization.
