CHOICE Thought provoking. There is a disjunction between Foucault's analysis of power and institutions and the normative orientations that so clearly animate his work. Contemporary political theorists attempting to appropriate and build upon Foucault's insights have almost invariably interpreted him as an individualistic anarchist, while Professor Pickett effectively argues that a more theoretically coherent interpretation would incorporate these insights into a radical theory of social democracy.
