Une fabrique du sujet contemporain : normes éducatives et dispositifs néolibéraux

Abstract : The neoliberal project, as developed theoretically in the inter-war years, and as applied politically from the late 1970s, identified as one of the conditions for its success and perpetuation the production of an original subject, capable of constantly adapting to new competitive economic and social configurations. In this context, education, insofar as it allows early action on subjectivations, is a major issue. New educational standards, espousing the economic logic of neoliberal rationality, have imposed, since the 1980s, reforms to school systems as well as reconfigurations to parental experiences. The common objective of all education becomes to transform the young individual, assimilated to an (economic) potential to be developed, into a productive, flexible, efficient and creative subject. Taken over by the self-help practices of a "culture of positivity" in constant expansion since the 1980s, and by the technological knowledge of neuroscience, contemporary childhoods have been disrupted. This work aims to report on the emergence of these new educational standards, and the childhoods they help to qualify and produce.
