Question 1 0 / 1 pts Which of the following statements is false? Correct Answer The theoretical concept of the panopticon as a social mechanism for controlling populations comes from an eighteenth-century prison design crafted by the British theorist Karl Marx. You Answered The guard tower in a panoptic prison is completely enclosed with mirrored windows, so the prisoners never know when they are being watched. The panoptic means of controlling behavior is a pervasive aspect of just about every government. The political philosopher Michel Foucault built upon the logic of the panoptic prison design and argued that it was similar to the way governments and leaders maintain control over the societies they rule. The answer can be found in Chapter 3 of A Novel Approach to Politics.
