    1 thought on “The Panopticon Writings

    1. Jeremy Bentham’s work, The Panopticon Writings, written in 1787, is a fascinating meditation on the puzzle of mass incarceration. Bentham wrote a series of letters that described the architecture of a prison he believed would solve England’s incarceration problem at the beginning of their industrial revolution. Bentham, often believed to be the father of utilitarianism, practiced an ideology of the greatest good, the most people that could benefit from disclosed means, was the best possible [...]

    2. Shockingly different from what I thought this would be. The first time I heard about the Panopticon, it was portrayed as a glass prison but Bentham’s letters shows it to be much, much more. A circular building with a god-like inspector placed in the middle, present in the minds, if not in actuality, of every single prisoner incarcerated there. Incredibly, he also saw it as a viable mad-house (to use his term), hospital or school! At times extremely tedious to read: discussing design, building [...]

    3. Bentham is, like most 18th century writers, borderline unreadable - yet reading these initial plans for the Panopticon shows just how little work Foucault had to do to theorize about modern surveillance states, power dynamics, etc.What you expect to be subtext is literally just text - Bentham lays out plans for private for-profit prisons, and discusses in explicit terms about the functions of observation and discipline. Except he writes about it in a Utopian mode, completely unaware of just how [...]

    4. The idea was terrific, but the way he expressed it was goddam tedious. Can't believe I needed a week to finish it!


    6. Short treatise by the philosopher and social reformer Jeremy Bentham regarding a building designed for the surveillance of it's inhabitants; a sort of 18th Century CCTV. It is written in the form of a series of letters from Russia where Bentham was visiting his brother. Bentham tried for years to get someone to invest in his idea but didn't succeed. Bentham died in 1832 but his body is preserved as an auto-ikon in the foyer of University College London and is worth a visit.

    7. Una desilusión. Esperaba un análisis filosófico sobre el impacto que el panóptico tendría en la libertad, el libre albedrío y la motivación de la gente alojada; sobre la vigilancia y sus implicancias éticas, etc.En vez de eso, este texto es sólo una descripción del edificio y todas las ideas de Bentham de como implementarlo y qué usos darle. Aburridísimo. Con la excepción del capítulo de las escuelas, que es terrorífico. La única parte interesante del libro.

    8. The central ideas are worth contemplating but reading the whole collection will, for most readers, be a waste of time. In short get a good summary of the work, I found the introduction by Miran Bozovic in the present edition quite comprehensive (although too positively biased toward Bentham, i.e. I suggest a more critical discussion of the ideas put forth), and save yourself the time of reading through the actual letters and the "architectural principles".

    9. Bentham was misunderstood by Foucault: more than someone obsessed with control, he cared about utilitarianism. The panopticon is seen as a model of efficiency and economy, not of totalitarian domination. In fact, Bentham also advocated for a panopticon in the political arena, so that the general public could observe the way in which their representatives served them.

    10. Il Panopticon non é un libro che si può valutare. Il Panopticon é uno spettacolo di architettura, di controllo e non solo: aiuta a capire il vero modo di pensare di Bentham, aiuta a comprendere i bisogni architettonici del primo diciannovesimo secolo. Gli interventi di Foucault, poi, meritano veramente.- - - Letto ed analizzato per una tesina.

    11. No es un libro escrito por Jeremy Bentham, sino una recopilación de lo que el manda como correspondencia. Estaría bueno que se aclare eso, pero mas allá creo que es una gran obra y me gusta tener la fuente de lo que comunmente de llama "panóptico", que después de leer el libro uno se da cuenta es un término preciso y cerrado, en el sentido que está bien pensado.

    12. overall loved the idea of imposing discipline by pretending to use punishment. The overall idea of a edifice that can keep society in line through scare tactics not only is morally right but highly intelligent.

    13. The exercise of reading this short work was as agonizing as the punishment it was written to describe. Unless you are some kind of penitentary fetishist, don't waste your time.
