One an important process for governments in orchestrating the transformation to purifier economies is to let low-carbon funding. the writer hence takes a serious examine how weather governance is reframed as an financial and funding problem lately, and divulges a number of the blind spots of concentrating on the industrial and funding possibilities concerning weather protection.

Example text

That is, to ask for the formation of the rules of formation outside the discursive sphere. The shift towards a form of analysis beyond archaeology is also based in Foucault’s growing interest in political discourse and its relation with scientific discourses, which makes the limits to an archaeological method become more obvious (Howarth 2000). The turn to genealogy does not mean, however, that Foucault abandons archaeology as a method altogether. All to the contrary, ‘the emphases on immanence, on coherence, and most centrally on discursive conditions of possibility, are retained’ (Collier 2009: 94).

Whereas the latter replaces the former when he turns to the question of power, insights from archaeology remain important for the study of power-knowledge complexes and are entailed in the concepts governmentality and problematisation as well. 1 Archaeology of discourse The first, archaeological phase of Foucault’s work culminates in the Archaeology of Knowledge (AK) (Foucault 1989b). In this largely methodological book he synthesises the discourse theoretical method he deployed in his preceding studies on madness, the birth of the clinic and the human sciences.

This distinct type of power in modern western society is captured in the notion government, as the ‘right way of arranging (disposer) things in order to lead (conduire) them […] to a “suitable end”, an end suitable for each of the things to be governed’ (Foucault 2007: 99). These things can be natural environments or material goods as much as institutions, customs, or ways of thought; Foucault, however, focuses on the government of the population, and describes this as the conduct of conduct as well.
