The Security Principle

The Security Principle From Serenity to Regulation Gros, Frederic

The genealogy of the idea of security from ancient Greece to the war on terrorism In The Security Principle, French philosopher Fr d ric Gros takes a historical approach to the concept of "security," looking at its evolution from the Stoics to the social network. With lucidity and rigour, Gros's approach is fourfold, looking at security as a mental state, as developed by the Greeks; as an objective situation and absence of all danger, as prevailed in the Middle Ages; as guaranteed by the nation state and its trio of judiciary, police and military; and finally "biosecurity," control, regulation and protection in the flux of contemporary society. In this deeply thought-provoking account, Gros's exploration of security shines a light both on its past meanings as well as its present uses, exposing the contemporary abuses of security and the pervasiveness of it in everyday life in the Global North.
