Re: [Foucault-L] citation query

Regarding your two citations:

1.) I know of a book where Foucault is mentioned as having made that
clarifcation. Michel Foucault's Force of Flight: Towards and Ethics
for Thought by James Bernauer. That should have the cite.
2.) Colin Gordon made a brief but interesting reply to Derrida's
critique in his review of the recent translation of History of Madness
(see ndpr for a copy).
