As in Nietzsche’s agonistic contest, the point is to prevent the solidification of strategic relations into states of domination. It is the agonism of permanent resistance that guarantees freedom (1982a:222–3). As Thiele (1990:919–21) suggests, Foucault’s politics lean toward a radical, agonistic democracy in which liberal freedoms are valued as the necessary conditions for the practice of strategic games of liberty. However, before we reach discussions of Foucault’s affirmative politics, the next chapters examine his oppositional politics, which focus on the constraining limits of present knowledge and subjectivity.
In relation to political practices with encoded ways of doing things, ‘true discourses…found, justify, and provide reasons and principles for these ways of doing things’ (1981b:8). There is also an isomorphism of techniques of knowledge and techniques of power. The means for gathering information which would be considered true are the same as the means for governing the people who are the object of study. For example, the means of gathering the knowledge constituting a medicine of epidemics were the same as those of a policing of populations, the machinery of observation and intervention: ‘A medicine of knowledge could only exist if supplemented by a police’ (1973a:25).
These epistemes are historical, changing suddenly over time (1981a:68). ’ (1972a:27; 1978a:14). The archaeological historical a priori is also called the ‘archive’, a ‘system of discursivity’, that is, ‘the system that governs the appearance of statements as unique events’ (1972a:129). Rather than being identified by their reference to essential objects (such as madness), by a style of descriptive statements (such as clinical discourse), by the permanence of the concepts used (as in grammar), by the persistence of themes (as in political economy), a discursive formation can be said to exist when there are regular relations between its objects, style of description, concepts and thematic choices.
