Foucault and Dewey

re-reading Foucault's work on ethics (His of Sex 2, 3) I was stuck by
some similar themes to the great American wind bag John Dewey.
Specifically: the similarity between 'use' as the basis for greek ethics
in Vol. 2 and Dewey's lamentation surrounding the separation of theory
from practice; also the search for an ethic (not moral code) that will
allow the re-joining of theory and practice that surrounds much of
Foucault's work.

Would appreciate any comments others have to offer.
