Un uomo che valuta

Massimiliano Nicoli


This article – written as a short story in the second-person narrative mode – focuses on the subjective, everyday experience of an individual concerned by some practices of evaluation. Through the telling of this concrete experience, it aims at giving substance to the idea that the practices of evaluation constitute an «environmental technology of government» typical of neoliberal governmentality as well as a self-disciplined technique of building one’s own «soul» as human capital.
