Abstract

The presentation opens a perspective of potential governmentality on state transformation. It is argued that potential governmentality is a process of building a visionary script of an emergent governmental form linked to the creation of a new politico-economic path in a state. The presentation discusses the idea of potential governmentality as a heuristic, elaborates the idea of state vigour as a generic form of governmentality and presents a case study in the context of the Finnish state. The presentation is an attempt to chart a particular form of state transformation in the context of diffusing geoeconomic calculation.
