I want to Thank You so much, for this answer! Excuse
me, if I distracted You! It seems that l'enonce: a
unseen, hard to be understood non-oneness -does not
deserves great attention in your view, if one intends
to write a general boock on the most attention-worthy
parts of l'oeuvre du Foucault.
You mention that "An enonce would be something like a
formula, or a statement in a biology book, or a list
of verb forms. Enonces work within a general
but that is not the core of the notion, that is only
its "material body", its not the part, that makes it
diffrent from the rest of the language elements.
But nevermind. I actualy wanted to ask the group, if
l'enonce have great importance in the whole work of
Foucault, or it is not great at all?
Will appreciate if i read your opinions!
