Restructuring of Social and Political Theory in Education: Foucault and a Social Epistemology of School Practices.
Popkewitz, Thomas S.; Brennan, Marie
Educational Theory, v47 n3 p287-313 Sum 1997
This essay discusses how Foucault's study of power relates to more general reexamination of the foundations of critical traditions, especially decentering of the subject as part of a broader consideration of social epistemology. The paper explores two concepts of power (sovereignty/repression and deployment/production of power) and examines the politics of intellectual work. (SM)
