This chapter pays attention to the question of government, composition of things, and consequent multiplication of the pedagogic, political, economic, and methodological arts that took place as of the sixteenth century. It talks about disassociation from critique, the “critical attitude” that will be expressed in a more modern fashion in the question of “how not to be governed.” The chapter also mentions Plato's Allegory of the Cave. In it, Plato provides a whole repertoire of locations of frontiers and thresholds and investments in a regard that is pregnant with life-or-death consequences, in theologies of salvation or damnation as well as epistemic moralities of truth and falsity. Within the stage machinery of comings and goings, it was decisive that a center is established so as to give meaning to movement and place.

Keywords:   salvation, damnation, critique, critical attitude, Plato, Cave
