Inquiry 28 (1-4):403 – 415 (1985)
|Abstract||What is the role assigned to the author in Foucault's theory of discourse? An analysis of that theory reveals that Foucault speaks in it of the author only as a function of the discourse. But, it is objected, that ignores the causal role of the author in producing a discourse. Foucault's later concern with the self is seen as going beyond his earlier statements about the nature of the human subject. But while his work as a whole offers important insights into the question of the author and the subject, he does not succeed in giving us a worked?out doctrine|
