Subject: help:Foucault and Wittgenstein

daer foucaultdians,

i've just started reading the 'philosophical investigations' of Wittgenstein
and it seems to me that foucault uses 'discours' in a very similar way to
Wittgenstein's 'sprachspiel'. (for example there is no meaning beyond the
discours/sprachspiel) is there anyone who has already thought about analogies
between Wittgenstein's concept of 'sprachspiel' and Foucault's theory of
discours, or know literature about ?
