Language, Power, and Politics — the Work of Foucault and Deleuze

  • Keith A. Reader


Virtually all the work dealt with up to now has been overtly political, in its context and its frame of reference. The next two chapters look at work of a somewhat different kind, whose relationship to the political struggles of post-1968 France is often implicit or ambiguous, so it will be helpful briefly to pause and draw together some of the main threads that have run through the work hitherto.
