The book focuses on three important aspects of how neoliberal regimes embed particular forms of ontologies within the structures of the subject: resilience, adaptation and vulnerability. The discussion between the two scholars explores the genealogy of these transformations that have shaped the current understanding of the subject as it is instituted within a great spectrum of forms of governmentality: from security studies and international relations to UN resolutions and social policies implemented by global governing structures. The book brings a great deal of clarity in terms of how the bio-political subject is aggregated and constructed in contemporary security studies and global neoliberal politics and it enfolds an incisive criticism of the ways in which these modes of understanding the self de-politicizes structural power relations and global inequalities.
