Martial metaphors and medical justice: Implications for law, crime, and deviance | Academy for the Psychoanalytic Arts [cached]

by Bruce Arrigo

In this regard, dangerousness functioned as a metaphor (Arrigo, 1996) where the police and psychiatry amounted to "institutions intended to react to danger" (Foucault, 1990:188).
Absent proof that one was a threat to another, one could still be confined, institutionalized, as a danger to one's self (Arrigo, 1993: 7-27), As Arrigo and Williams conclude (1998:7): "Thus, any form of danger [became] justification for involuntary (criminal/civil) confinement.
Foucault's (1972) archeology of knowledge, particularly when applied to medicine, demonstrates how medical justice, "speaks a [certain) truth, exercises power accordingly-, and produces a disciplinary society in which people [a]re normalized and de-pathologized" because of their differences (Arrigo, 1993: 49, 135).
The chronicling of metaphors is an extension of my prior work on medicine, law, and crime (e.g., Arrigo, 1993, 1996).
This war, however, is a fight against that difference which disease signifies (e.g., the mentally ill, the physically disabled, the elderly) (Arrigo, 1996).
Following Foucault (1965, 1973, 1977), medical science is the avatar of truth and, as such, law defers to its pronouncements to advance the episteme of medical justice (Arrigo, 1996: 47-93).
2 There are a few isolated studies. especially including the work, of Szasz (1963, 1987) and Arrigo (1993, 1996), These projects. though, tend to focus on metaphors in psychiatric justice only. For an analysis of how the language of crime and medicine produces sustained trunscarcerative practices see Arrigo (1997).
3 Criminological scholarship has only recently explored this phenomenon. For additional theoretical analysis see Arrigo, 1995: 449-451: Arrigo and Bernard, 1997: 52-54.
For applications to psychiatric medicine and disordered criminal defendants see Arrigo, 1994.
