See Arato and Cohen, "The genealogical critique," 272-286. Joachim Hirsch has suggested that the types of practices and techniques which Foucault associated with "bio-power" were central to the "Fordist" phase of capi talist development. More generally, Hirsch implies, it is only with reference to the complex institutional and social dynamics of capitalism that the abstract, anony mous, and polycentric forms of power which Foucault analyzed so acutely could be adequately explained.
