This chapter refers to two or three regimes that are transversal to the various modes of existence of critique and crisis, even of life and work. It explains the technologies of critique as a question of organic structure and theatre, which, although not the same, are not essentially different regimes either, superimposing themselves on one another and even substituting the one for the other. André Lalande, in his Dictionnaire philosophique, notes that the concept of structure designates a whole in solidarity with itself, such that each of its elements depends on the others and can only be what it is in and through its relation with them. The chapter tracks the metaphor of structure in the aporias through Aristotle's writing. A structure, Aristotle writes, that is irreducible to the simple sum of its parts.

Keywords:   critique, crisis, technologies, André Lalande, Dictionnaire philosophique, Aristotle
