Epilogue: Ambitions and Insinuations book
This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses the modern tendency to define critique as founded judgement. It has demonstrated that the postulated being of critique as founded judgement is inextricably related to contingent processes that have produced it as such. The book explores how radical criminological archives emerge in different contexts through influential genres of critique; almost all of these genres employ a critical grammar that erects ideal criteria, describes given contexts and judges the latter against the former to point out progressive social transformations. It examines how the governmental grammar of critique might be articulated to the spirit of radical criminological archives. In the process, radical archives in criminology betray implicit, but inordinately close, ties to judgemental critical grammars. The text indicates how this governmental grammar of critique might be articulated to the spirit of radical criminological archives.
