First off, I am as uncertain as many others regarding Foucault, but here are
my ideas. If anyone can confirm or correct me please do.
Generally, you can find plenty of Foucault links at my web site:
I get the impression that Bio-power is the power that people confer onto
doctors such that what they say is perceived to be truth. That truth can
lead to the legitimate creation of addicts of various drugs and processes to
resolve problems that might be symptoms of things other than doctors
My impression of Bernauer's comment about how Bio-Power creates the
possibility for the annihilation of the human race is that he considers that
people will try to make themselves well by believing doctors' 'truths'.
Reliance on that sort of assurance could result in people becoming reliant
on drugs and unable to create natural defences to ever mutating virises and
As Bryan says ...

Please let me know if I am on the right track!
