Public health became a moral enterprise, in the sense it involved prescriptions about how we should live our lives individually and collectively. (Peterson and Lupton, xii)

Power operates not so much through repression, violence, direct coercion or blatant control as through the creation of expert knowledges about human beings and societies. (Peterson and Lupton, xii)
