    Foucault on Parrhesia.Torben Bech Dyrberg - 2016 - Political Theory 44 (2):265-288.
    Foucault’s discussions of parrhesia provide fertile ground for raising a number of classical and pertinent issues in political theory related to critique, citizenship, and political authority. Foucault situates parrhesia in his analytical grid of power/knowledge/ethics, which maps political participation and experience, and he looks at how those who pursue or contest political power articulate and integrate these three facets of politics, which might well pull in opposite directions. Power concerns the ability and the audacity to face up to important political (...)

    The Leftist Fascination with Schmitt and the Esoteric Quality of `the Political'.Torben Bech Dyrberg - 2009 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 35 (6):649-669.
    The article looks critically at the Schmitt revival among radical leftists, how they try to insulate his work from his political conviction and make a problematic distinction between liberalism and democracy, which undercuts the specificity of modern democracy and plays into reactionary identity politics. I then turn to how Schmitt conceptualizes the political and argue that the structure of his argument is antithetic to modern democracy. Against those who hold that it is possible to use Schmitt against himself, I argue (...)

    Critique as Locus or Modus? Power and Resistance in the World of Work.Torben Bech Dyrberg & Peter Triantafillou - 2019 - Outlines. Critical Practice Studies 20 (1):47-70.
    How and from where can power be criticized and resisted? The advent of new managerial forms of power has brought the question once more to the fore. One of the salient issues is whether the ubiquity and apparent omnipotence of contemporary forms of managerial power renders critique and resistance difficult. This article compares the critical potential of French pragmatic sociology and Foucauldian-inspired genealogy. We argue that both approaches offer viable critiques of contemporary forms of power. Yet, whereas the critique of (...)

    The Democratic Ideology of Right–Left and Public Reason in Relation to Rawls's Political Liberalism.Torben Bech Dyrberg - 2005 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 8 (2):161-176.
    This article aims to outline a perspective on democratic ideology centred on orientation and justification, which is discussed in relation to the right?left dyad and public reason. Ideology is approached in terms of the orientational structuring of identification processes, which is discussed in relation to the articulation between four pairs of orientational metaphors (up?down, in?out, front?back and right?left), which shape the political terrain and the terms of political justification. The latter is expressed in public reason based on political equality, pluralism (...)
