What the host calls “states” the guests prefer to call phases. Not “States of Matter" but rather phases of matter. Their description of “energy landscapes” puts me in mind of the comparison someone made in seminar last Thursday between Foucault’s account of panopticism and the way transistors work, especially with respect to the way they conduct power. This discussion adds energy into the mix, and might allow us to raise the curious question: what if we tried to theorize power in terms of energy and the state (or sovereignty) in terms of phases? (Then in seminar this week somebody brought up entropy…)

"No, freedom was not what I wanted. Only a way out; right or left, or in any direction; I made no other demand; even should the way out prove an illusion; the demand was a small one, the disappointment could be no bigger. To get out somewhere, to get out! Only not to stay motionless with raised arms, crushed against a wooden wall."
