Could please clarify (or qualify) this comment? I am thinking of the very
different ready by Barry Smart, who notes the same section ealy in The
Archaeology (pp45-46 in my translation) and then suggests that 'the
question of the relationship between discursive and non-discursive
practices receives little consideration as priority is accorded to the
question of the analysis of discourse' ('Michel FOucault', 1985: 41).
