By Mark Olssen

Although Foucault departs from Marxism, his personal technique constitutes a kind of constant materialism which has theoretical implications for the research of social and academic discursive platforms.

Because the uniqueness of Foucault's strategy can most sensible be visible unlike different significant philosophical platforms and thinkers, enormous realization is given to reading Foucault's courting to Marxism, in addition to his kin to Kant, Gramsci, Habermas, and the Greeks. when it comes to schooling, there's in Foucault's process a double emphasis which constitutes an ordering precept for this paintings. at the one hand, consciousness is directed to discursive practices which practice an educative function within the structure of topics and of human varieties of life. however, varieties of schooling are constituted and applied for the needs of collective moral self-creation, a topic Foucault emphasised in his later works.
