Abstract: The disapproval of violence contained in its very concept (as a force directed against something or conflicting with something) hides a regulatory dimension which is manufactured and not self-evident. What I am trying to explain in this article is the logical error that lies behind acts of violence and not its moral assessment.

Keywords: Foucault, violence, terrorism
