Am I correct is saying that Foucault's term savoir:

concerns itself with the discovery and symbolising of discursive formations


or from reading Governmentality (p.20), does it mean something a bit 

Is savoir a noun? or a verb? or both?

In some ways I could perceive it to be the representation of discursive 
formation - a sort of accepted procedure, or a ritual for doing things 
within due course ... along the path and between the defined limits or 
pickettes of acceptable behaviour.
