Summary
  • Jeremy Bentham's ingenious plan for the Panopticon, a prison institution administered by invisible overseers, while never built, resonates across all areas of modern society. Frequently cited but seldom read, the complete Panopticon Letters are presented here with selections from Postkript land Bentham's fascinating account of fiction, Fragment on Ontology. Together with an introduction by Miran BoPovic that reaches beyond Foucault's famous account, these texts convey the controversial brilliance behind the Panopticon and its vexed utopia of order. --Book Jacket.
