Foucault’s Ethics and Politics: A Strategy for Feminism?

  • Moya Lloyd


As Foucault showed us in his last books and in his life, there is a kind of ethical and intellectual integrity which, while vigorously opposing justifications of one’s actions in terms of religion, law, science or philosophical grounding, nonetheless seeks to produce a new ethical form of life which foregrounds imagination, lucidity, humour, disciplined thought and practical wisdom. (Dreyfus and Rabinow, 1986: 121)
