The public execution was the logical culmination of a procedure governed by
the Inquisition. The practice of placing individuals under 'observation' is
a natural extension of a justice imbued with disciplinary methods and
examination procedures. Is it surprising that the cellular prison, with its
regular chronologies, forced labour, its authorities of surveillance and
registration, its experts in normality, who continue and multiply the
functions of the judge, should have become the modern instrument of
penality? Is it surprising that prisons resemble factories, schools,
barracks, hospitals, which all resemble prisons? (_Discipline and Punish_,
English translation, pp. 227-228)
