Notes on Michel Foucault's The Order of Discourse, an inaugural lecture at the Collège de France, given on Dec. 2, 1970, and published in French as L'Ordre du Discours (Paris: Gallimard, 1970). The lecture sketches out Foucault's approach to the study of ideology, institutions, and cultural phenomena. These notes provide a critical contextualization of Foucault's approach and relate his work to that of other contemporary cultural theorists.
