Power/BaudrillardVsFoucault: Power theory: its object has radically changed: no longer as in Foucault in defined areas like state and prison but everywhere. Baudrillard: Power has mutated into mere signs of itself. Foucault can only talk about the power because it has already disappeared.
Baudrillard thesis: Power is only there to hide that it is not there anymore. Power should be affirmed without limit, so that it ultimately turns against itself._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
