Keywords: discipline; regimen; care of the self; aesthetics of existence; machinism; fascism; body

Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this article is twofold. On the one hand I highlight the focus of the Foucauldian liberation project; on the other hand I want to justify this project on an ontological level by introducing a “machine language” (inspired by the two-volume work Capitalism and Schizophrenia of Deleuze and Guattari). For this purpose I construct a research mini-tool whereby the difference between discipline and regimen will be analyzed. Moreover, in conclusion, I point out some weaknesses of the project offered by the author of The History of Sexuality which are revealed by the perspective I propose.
