problematization


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Probably the most influential conception of this term derives from Michel Foucault, whose work on health, incarceration, madness, and sexuality inquires how each of these things was rendered problematic, which is to say transformed into something capable of inducing or requiring action at the level of the state. In this sense, problematization is one of governmentality's core processes.
