Michel Foucault
“The man described for us, whom we are invited to free, is already in himself the effect of a subjection much more profound than himself. A 'soul' inhabits him and brings him to existence...the soul is the effect and instrument of political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body.”
Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison

Michel Foucault
“This is the historical reality of the soul, which, unlike the soul represented by Christian theology, is not born in sin and subject to punishment, but is born rather out of methods of punishment, supervision, and constraint.”
Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison

Michel Foucault
“Visibility is a trap.”

Robert A. Heinlein
“But goodness alone is never enough. A hard, cold wisdom is required for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom always accomplishes evil.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
