Re: Spoon Home Page

Hi Hector
How come F. isn't hot in Mexico? Are your intellectuals critical of him and
what do they oppose in his theories?
May be if Mexico experience another revolution, then the foucaldien approach
to power will become fashinable over there too (as it became in mine) since
the abuse pf power is in the nature of revolutions!
So much for my prophecy!
Could you please tell me where (I prefere a site in the Net Scape)I can
find correct and accurate news (not propaganda) about what is happening in

Bonne Chance avec la these.

A bientot
