David Langwallner on Foucault’s Panopticon
Audio interview on Soundcloud
Human Rights Lawyer David Langwallner discusses the idea of the Panopticon that Michel Foucault borrowed from Jeremy Bentham to describe the all-seeing eye of the prison. Foucault argued that this has been internalised and led to a series of restraints on our natural inclinations, which have been amplified in turn by the Covid-19 pandemic.
