Re: [Foucault-L] said's orientalism, foucault's comments?

I suggest:

In Rabinow's "Essential Works of Foucault" series, volume 3
("Power" edited by Faubion) there are the pieces
"Open Letter to Mehdi Bazargan" and "Useless to Revolt?"

Tools, not theories.

I'm afraid not the answer you are looking for but lately I came across two
articles that may be of interest:

Uta Liebmann Schaub "Foucault's Oriental Subtext"
PMLA Vol. 104 No. 3. p.306-316 (1989)

Rosemarie Scullion "Foucault the Orientalist"
South Central Review Vol. 12 No. 2. p.16-40 (1995)

I believe the Schaub article was discussed here as well.

Hi all,

Working on Edward Said's Orientalism for a while, I am wondering if
Foucault had said anything about Said's work. The book, after all, was
published in 1978 and it got immediate response both from academic
circles and popular media. Being a work deeply based on Foucault's
analysis of discourse, I guess Orientalism must have had taken
attention of Foucault too in a six-years time. A brief search, though,
didn't come up with anything. Do you know any article or interview
where Foucault talks about Said?
