Abstract

Theoretically no Brothers: Marx and Foucault as Antagonists_ In spite of Foucault'sfrequent and positive references to Marx he does not deal with the critique of politicaleconomy. Foucault defines power in demarcation to Marxism and to approaches that theorizepower in relation to economy. This leads to serious flaws in Foucault's analytics of power. If wecompare Foucault's analysis of discipline and law to Marx' we can see that the two theories areincompatible. Attempts to merge Foucault and Marx otten lack methodological considerations.However it may be possible to re-interpret certain of Foucault's findings from a Marxian perspectiveand in doing so connecting Foucault and Marx.
