Abstract
The information age has been marked by complex advancements in the technologies of social management. Many of these advancements have been discussed in recent political theory. However, a thorough engagement with their mechanism and historical resonance remains necessary in order to substantiate such discussion. In this dissertation, I situate and analyze the increasingly informatic, molecular, and distributed technologies of power characteristic of "control societies" on a throughly substantive level. My research substantiates a number of claims made in recent political theory regarding control societies, and indicates that only a politics of positive feedback is adequate to the mechanism of such societies.
