  • Transcript

    • 1. What is holopticism?
    • 2. First, let’s look at it’s opposite: panopticism.
    • 3. Imagine a prison shaped like this...
    • 4. Here are the prisoners,
    • 5. and here is the warden.
    • 6. Notice that the prisoners can’t see each other, line of site
    • 7. but the guard can see the door to every cell.
    • 8. This makes sense in a prison,
    • 9. because you don’t want prisoners to coordinate their actions
    • 10. independently of the warden.
    • 11. This is the essence of panopticism.
    • 12. Now imagine a sports team,
    • 13. or a jazz band.
    • 14. Each member of the team perceives everyone else,
    • 15. and can coordinate with them.
    • 16. But most importantly of all...
    • 17. everyone has a sense of the emerging whole,
    • 18. and can adjust their actions for the greatest fit.
    • 19. This is holopticism.
