The major problem of Michel Foucault’s emancipative ethics is its dangerous ambivalence. The absolutization of human autonomy is only apparent; in fact, Foucault sees man as a limited biological organism. Most of his work is focused on shifting man’s attention and ambition from the cognitive attitude to the expressive approach, whose purpose is “emancipative disintegration”. Taking into consideration the social side of experience (Erlebnis) we want to underline its unreal and simulative consequences, which instead of leading to epistemological and ethical liberation in fact become nothing more than a great confinement of modern man inside his subjective phantasmagorias. His freedom thus becomes both absolute and worthless.
