What Can the Field of Developmental Disabilities Learn from Michel Foucault?
Danforth, Scot
Mental Retardation, v38 n4 p364-69 Aug 2000
This article discusses the ideas of Michel Foucault, a French postmodernist, as they pertain to issues related to the provision of services to people with developmental disabilities. It focuses on four specific theoretical concepts: (1) the power/knowledge nexus, (2) the political construction of the "other," (3) the disciplinary technologies, and (4) the insurrection of subjugated knowledge.
