Summary expansion
The controversy over whether feminists can usefully use Foucault's theoretical framework to advance their concerns is a mirror of the larger debate over whether postmodernism has a place in progressive political thought. McLaren (philosophy and women's studies, Rollins College) finds that Foucault's ideas about the body, power, and subjectivity can provide important theoretical resources for feminists, especially his notion of subjectivity as embodied and historically constituted. She addresses feminist criticism of Foucault, but notes that most feminist have paid little attention to his later work, but McLaren argues that they hold the key to his larger project that provides the theoretical resources mentioned above.
