Foucault’s masterpiece Discipline and Punish (1975) provided a genealogical analysis of the prison as a model for the disciplinary society that displaces the liberal juridico-political theory of sovereignty with a new kind of disciplinary power exemplified by Bentham’s panopticum. This article revisits Foucault’s classic as a basis for examining it significance for school in the epoch of digital reason. pp. 28–46
