These are post-Foucauldian times we live in

I have just finished reading Dimitris Papadopoulos's wonderful editorial introduction to Critical Psychology 12 - Psychology and the poltitical. Papadopoulos claims that psychology is "no longer concerned with the calibration and management of the individual", but rather aims to "dissect and dissolve individuality". I'm not really sure if he is right, but he constructs a very plausible, richly illustrated, argument to show that "these are post-Foucauldian times we live in". Highly recommended.
