“Our initial conception of flourishing was stymied in our relations with the bio-scientists and other social scientists (more on this below). This indifference led us to develop a conceptual repertoire of what we termed “minor vices,” embedded in the micro-practices of knowledge production during the course of inquiry and research. Attention has been paid, of course, to the macro-scalar conditions of funding, institutional and bureaucratic inertia, the corporate shaping of agendas, as well to as our ever-increasing audit culture. How these macro-forces became anchored in practice, often tacitly, has been less explored.
These breakdowns and blockages reveal conceptual and ethical topoi that we are convinced demand more attention and a change in practices.”
Paul Rabinow, Anthony Stavrianakis
