Science with a capital S and what she calls “ontological politics.”

Ah! and one more
follow-up, particularly in the wake of our continued attempts to bring
this back to material conditions (thanks, Robyn!), I wonder if the
attached article by Elizabeth Sweet would help continue to both ground
and extend thinking on these matters:
"Like You Failed At Life": Debt, health and neoliberal subjectivity." Social Science & Medicine 212(2018): 86-93.
