Abstract:This afterword deals with the scientific and social status of the concepts of complexity, materialism, and difference in relation to the process of subject formation. It pays special attention to the historical context of advanced capitalism and the extent to which it has altered our understanding of notions and practices of embodiment and interrelationality. It discusses issues of biopower on the one hand and new forms of vital politics on the other, in relation to the political and theoretical project of sexual difference.
