Yes, but doesn't this again raise the question of why Foucault's ethics
deals one's relationship with one's self and not necessarily (or directly at
least) other people. Compare, for example, with the deconstructive ethics
of Levinas in which the non-thematizable Other leads to a radical,
pre-cognitive responsibility.
