RIVERA LOPEZ, Diego; FUSTER SANCHEZ, Nicolás  and  BASSA MERCADO, Jaime. The method Foucault gave us: the Foucauldian toolbox for thinking about philosophical problems in a digital context. Some notes and examples from the 2019 Chilean mobilizations. Rev. humanid. Valpso. [online]. 2021, n.17, pp.271-288.  Epub Aug 01, 2021. ISSN 0719-4234.

This paper seeks to highlight the French philosopher Michel Foucault's contributions regarding his analysis of power. In this sense, the text proposes a conceptual transition around the ideas that could have interested the author within a digital context, integrating some notes and examples from the 2019 Chilean mobilizations.

The article has an initial section that exposes genealogy as a way of approaching social reality. Then, it shows the social behaviors anticipation possibilities and their relationship with the information available on the web. Later, it renders an account of the algorithmic governmentality notion as a key to reading it in both normative structure and a political possibility to final state reflections.

Keywords : Foucault; algorithmic governmentality; political possibility; Chilean mobilization.
