Sciences/Foucault: empirical natural sciences have a certain special status, he criticizes the human sciences (humanities) as non-autonomous. They work with borrowed models and foreign ideals of objectivity. FoucaultVsHumanities: they remain pseudosciences because they do not see through the compulsion to aporetically duplicate the self-referential subject (subject/object).
I 334
Def Biopower/Foucault: disciplinary power functions without the detour of a necessarily false consciousness. The discourses merge with the practices of their application. It is the form of society that eliminates all naturalness and transforms the whole of creaturely life into a substrate of bequest.
Habermas I 335
> Sloterdijk: .... until there, resistance can draw its motif solely from the signals of body language, from that non-verbalizable language of the tormented body, which refuses to be suspended into discourse. (Critique of Cynical Reason). FoucaultVsSloterdijk: this interpretation (by Sloterdijk) that he admittedly does not make himself his own: otherwise he would have to grant the other of reason, as materially, the status that he denies him with good reasons. He defends himself against a naturalistic metaphysics that reifies a counter-power.
