Training and work beyond the bio-political schema


  • Fabrizio d'Aniello


This article sets out to further the convenience of a pedagogical configuration
of the organizations against a bio-political vision of work in the era of
cognitive and experiential capitalism, playing on training recommendations
aimed both to highlight the properly educational contribution and to jointly
meet the economic interest and the one related to the human development.
The first part analyses the ambivalence of today’s work and points out
the bio-political risk. The second part is devoted to the relationship between
subjectification and worker’s subjection, and to the fallibility of the
bio-political schema. The third part, finally, deepens the pedagogical nature
of a “personal” organization and dwells on the issues of the organizational
well-being and the training of the workers’ “agency”.
