This dissertation aims to investigate the dynamics established between the use of digital devices and the rise of new ways of being. As long as such dynamics permeate the social interactions developed throughout the digital context, we intend to address its given consequences to subjectivity and formation. By observing the peculiarity linked to massive usage of on line technological devices, we adopted a conceptual framework in compliance with the bodywork of Michel Foucault even though the debate emerged from it doesn’t get restricted to the French thinker. By assuming the contribution of other theorists that dialogue with his philosophical perspective, it enables a prolific debate that contextualizes the foucauldian precepts to the digital context. This is due to the critical reflection on personal devices such as computers, pads and smartphones seen as relevant elements in the processes in which subjects comprehend themselves. This theoretical research also focuses on the influences of neoliberalism taken as a social trend capable of grasping the ways of being by the application of digital technologies in everyday practices. By noting Education in its association with the usage of digital devices, the emerging processes imply that Education itself functions as a biopolitical instrument of governmentality relevant for the digital culture – this implies a new meaning and also a challenge to education as formation. Considering the neoliberal trend and its interest on self-management, the perspective of the body cult leveraged by the use of digital devices challenges the care of the self as problematized by Foucault. The main role of this study is to contrast conceptual tools given by Foucault’s work such as governmentality, biopolitics, power relations and care of the self with the notions of entrepreneur aesthetics of being and processes of subjectivation and subjectification in the digital context.
