Re: deconstruction v. genealogy

Genealogy is different from deconstruction:

1) Deconstruction is limited to the text(s). Genealogy the intersection of
language, institutions, and power.

2) Genealogy is a narrative (fictional and fungible, but still a narrative);
deconsruction an anti-narrative.

3) Genealogy laspses into anthropology (see Nietzsche Ubermensch and late
Foucault erotics of the self); deconstruction places the axis of meaning
outside of the self.
