Do the changes that have been affecting productive organizations for the last twenty years put an end to the content and logic of the disciplinary structures as analyzed by Michel Foucault? Is there something particular about the current structures that is associated with these changes? And what does the meeting between desire and governments, which seems to characterize modern management, tell us about the place of the subject in the organization to the extent that it is not made up of disciplines. Études de Communication proposes a critical review of productive organizations from the point of view of power structures and their implication in the construction of the subject. In so doing, what is questioned is the interest of Michel Foucault’s work in understanding and analyzing the transformations that arise to a large extent from the domain of information and communications, and the transformations whose logics extend to other spheres of social life and touch the meaning of citizenship and individual and collective existence.
