Dear Sir/Madam,

I have just been looking over your website and have a couple of questions to ask you regarding Foucault.

Firstly: Is power 'repressive' or 'productive' ?

and Secondly: Has social construction theory, particularly variants whcih see 'sexual impulse', 'sex drive', or 'lust' as created, made no room for the body, its functions and physiology?

I would appreciate as much information as possible as I find Foucault's ideas on these subjects extremely interesting. Thanking you in advance.

Yours Sincerely

TOM MORLEY
