Making nietzsche's thought groan: The history of racisms and Foucault's genealogy of nietzschean genealogy in "Society must be defended"

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


In 1976, in "Society Must be Defended," Foucault did more than offer an alternative genealogy of his own genealogical perspective to the one he is sometimes taken to have provided in "Nietzsche, Genealogy, History." He also, by implication, located Nietzsche within that genealogy, one result of which is that he gave what amounts to a new perspective on how Nietzsche might be placed within the history of racisms.
