Ethical work can also be regarded as a practice of “problematization” (Foucault 1990: 10). For Faubion, problematization is “that reflexive process through which one presents to oneself a certain way of acting or reacting, asks questions of it, examines its meanings and goals” (2001: 97). He argues that Foucault’s work on the genealogy of systems of thought demonstrates that each parameter of the ethical fourfold–ethical substance, mode of subjectivation, ethical work, and telos–“can itself be (and in fact has been) the focus of problematization” (2001: 98).
