This article aims to make a comparison between two fundamental concepts of the philosophies of Foucault and Heidegger: dispositive and Gestell. Based on the assumption that the two terms identify a type of disposition I undertake an analysis of the similarities between the notions. For this purpose the following essay is divided into two parts: in the first given the interviews and texts of the secondary bibliography I examine the plausibility of the relationship between Heidegger and Foucault. In the second I characterize dispositive and Gestell in order to approximate them.
