Re: Discourse and Non-DIscursive ______


I'm not sure I'm up to that, but fishing through Archaeology of Knowledge,
especially the conclusion, and especially the essay at the back: the
discourse on language, should help. The conclusion has a brilliant dialogue
with a fictitious interlocutor who trashes Foucault's whole position, but in
the course of this, a definition of discouse emerges.
