Productivity', 'network', 'partnership', 'quality' and 'agility' are examples of a vocabulary that currently shapes public administration, business corporations, and the relationship between the government and civil society. However, they are not the terms by which academic disciplines such as political philosophy, political science, or constitutional law (not to mention civic education of high schools) have traditionally approached the problems of state and society. The aim of 'managerialism' as a governance doctrine is to influence political institutions and relations of power. A core part of this change takes place in and through language. If the concepts related to the use of political power were quite close to the 'traditional' social and legal sciences a few decades ago, then its theoretical background appears to have moved closer to the managerial and administrative sciences more recently.
