This negative image of the Panopticon could well have dissuaded many from seeking out a more positive potentiality in Bentham. Further, many critics may have been dissuaded from engaging with Bentham’s writings in general, even so as to clarify appreciation of the negative dimensions of the Panopticon. As Semple (1992) in effect suggests, many may take Foucault’s characterisation of the Panopticon in terms of Panopticism to be a good and comprehensive summary of Bentham’s intervention, albeit that Foucault was much more interested in constructing and mobilising Panopticism as a metaphor of disciplinary power than he was in elaborating a critical interpretive analysis of Bentham’s work.
This is to go beyond Alvesson and Willmott’s (1992: 450) view that the anti-authoritarian emphasis of a critical theoretical perspective leads it only to counter ideologies and arrangements ‘that obstruct human freedom, not filling the latter with particular contents’. 20 In respect of providing a stimulus more specifically to projects giving greater attention to accounting in the context of a broader emancipatory praxis, the philosophical critique of emancipation points to the relevance of analysing detailed specificities of the social and places emphasis upon the potentiality of democratic forces.
We go on to critically reflect upon Bentham’s accounting texts and in the light of this consider what can go wrong in the operationalisation today of a project to advance, like Bentham, an accounting that would be emancipatory. We emphasise in this context the relevance of our analysis for a project concerned to better align accounting with emancipation today. Our argument, then, will be that not only can one gain insights for praxis from a critical theoretical engagement with the negative in Bentham, but also from a more balanced critical theoretical appreciation of the positive.
