RODRIGUEZ FREIRE, Raúl. Said's Foucault: Eccentric Notes on a few Metropolitan Relations. Aisthesis [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 42-53. ISSN 0718-7181. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812011000200002.
The following essay aims to underline a few turning points in the work I of Michel Foucault in contrast to Edward Said's intellectual production, one of his main promoters in the United States. This essay will trace the articles in which Said dealt with the work of Foucault and that were later rewritten so as to drift apart from the French thinker and, at the same time, make a critique about his work. As it is argued here, this conflict is due to the result of Palestine policies inside the academia Said was intensely developing with Orientalism and the critiques that it provoked.
