 User Description: Constellations aren't about acquisition of partial data, but slightly about recognition of the relation of concepts to one another in order that conflicts between them come to mild and reveal what identitarian logic has ignored. That is, incapacity is conceived in relation to the capitalist mode of production, whereby exchange value and equivalence ends in conceptual frameworks of identification and sameness. Although Puar recognizes the methods through which equivalence and id are at work within neoliberal capitalist economies, she challenges this pairing by an examination of the processes of capacity and debility that exceed the class of disability. Puar contends that given biopolitical developments in neoliberal capitalism, normalizing the disabled body is no longer the foremost focus of medical intervention. A biopolitical shift has occurred whose focus is the differential capacitation of all bodies, she claims, not the achievement of a normative in a position-bodiness. In accordance with Puar, neoliberalism mobilizes the tension between capability and debility to break down the binaries between normative/non-normative, disabled/abled because "debility is worthwhile to capitalism, but so is the demand to 'get better' from or overcome it" (154) through processes of capacitation. In one thing akin to creating constellations, Puar moves us away from pondering by way of binaries of abled/disabled and reframes this relationship in terms of debility and capability to attend to changes inside capitalism.
