This paper re-interprets the three-dimensional power debate, Foucault’s account of subjectification (theorized as the fourth dimension of power), through the lens of Arendt’s concept of power as concerted power. Allen has brought these perspectives together using the conceptual vocabulary of power to, power with and power over, arguing that concerted power concerted power corresponds to the power to and power with. In contrast, this article argues that concerted power also includes power over. The four dimensions of conflictual power both lead to domination (as is usually argued) and to concerted power, which constitutes one of the conditions essential to democracy.
