This introductory chapter sets out the scope, aim, and structure of the book. It makes the case for using Hannah Arendt’s work as a foundation for contemporary biopolitical analysis, and advances an extension of her work on the socio-political conditioning of the human. In particular, the chapter identifies and outlines three core modes of conditioning (the biopolitical, the technological, and the ethical), which serve as a framework for the analysis undertaken in the rest of the book.
