The regime of truth

Truth regime is a much-used but little theorized concept. A pithy phrase that Foucault b introduced in a single interview during"truth regime" appears to have been subsequently abandoned by him, only to be repeated by many others without further conceptualization.

A more robust conceptualization of truth regime is needed to acknowledge that the truth practices of contemporary societies are more heterogeneous than Foucault's overemphasis on scientific and quasi-scientific truth in modernity. Contemporary forms of truth are wider than Foucault recognized, their relations to power more various, and their historicity more complex. Following the trajectory of Foucault's last work on the multiplicity of co-existing truth games in ancient Greece and Rome, I suggest that truth in modernity is not singular but multiple in its types, which I term "truth formulae.

Power is not an intrinsic criterion of truth formulae; rather, truth formulae acquire effects of power through their attachment to specific dispositifs power apparatuses such as discipline and sexuality in The concept of truth regime. Author: Lorna Weir. Date: Mar.
