From polis to oikos, or of the countenance in policy. This essay wants to call into question a cliché or a doxa. That today policy can still identify itself with the collective dimension of the polis and return efficacy to the values that it has taken from the Modern: the public sphere, the civil society, the shared values and strategies, the identification with a common law. At the state of things, we believe that only the countenance and the unconscious remain of this image of the polis and that its effectiveness is zero. Or better, that the portrait of the polis thus conceived is nothing more than one of the dimensions of the ideology. In other words, the "crisis of policy" can not be resolved by returning to the "modern" forms of the Law. On the contrary, the multiplicity of the regulations (governmentality ) represents a state that certifies its end. Starting from this verification, we consider two concepts in the research lexicon of Jacques Lacan - the notions of "countenance" and "enjoyment" - and their evolution. Some possible indications for policy rise from this: cross the enjoyment, the countenance and his plan of immanence, to enter a new political dimension. Not "what remains" but what has not yet been invented, what can be perceived through the folds of the enjoyment-in-policy.
