2008 (English)In: Foucault and Lifelong Learning: Governing the subject, 2008Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to problematize contemporary thought about knowledge and knowledge production by comparing discursive practices in the fields of teacher education, public health and criminal justice. Knowledge and knowledge organization cannot be thought of without considering the lotion of governance. Governance takes place in relation to the ways in which we develop and organize knowledge about things and phenomena that are to be governed, and knowledge is not intelligible without an understanding of tiow it is situated in the present as embedded in historical conditions.
