Have you read "What is critique?", contained in James Schmidt, editor, "What
is Enlightenment?" published by University of California Press? It's an
early piece by Foucault and very valuable, I think.

>I'm not quite sure how to frame this question/request, so please

>I am looking for books and/or articles that examine/explore

>of subjectivity and their relation to the practice of
>analysis and critique. Put another way, how does a critic/
>analyst who subscribes to a notion of subjectivity that
>problematizes/interrogates issues of agency, self-determination,
>knowledge and autonomy in relation to the subject situate/explain
>his or her practice of critique? Indeed, how do "pomo"
>conceptions of subjectivity problematize the idea and practice of critique?
>I am familiar with Foucault's formulation of the "specific intellectual"
>would be interested in examining texts that

>If I can clarify any of the above, let me know.
