Re: Foucault and Agency

I don't think that foucault would accept any concept of desire which
did not recognize that the forms of desire are historically

The best reading of agency in Foucault's late works is in Deleuze's
FOUCAULT, in the chapter/section entitled Foldings. In this connection
Barry Smarts review essay of HS II and II and John Rajchman's book on
Foucault and Lacan are helpful. If you want to make the connection
between this concept of ethics and F's work on governmentality -
around the ideas of practices/technologies I found Ian Hunter's
work helpful.

Does anyone read Foucault on governmentality? Do you - or do
you know anyone who is - applying this to American texts?
