Or, one could do as Foucault does and change the question: in the intro
to _The Foucault Reader_, Rabinow discusses how Foucault refused to get
into the question of what is truth, choosing instead to answer the
question, How has truth been employed? Whether this is responsible in
its modesty, or it is cowardly is open to debate, of course.
