MACHADO, Sérgio Bacchi. Marx's ideology and Foucault's discourse: convergence and distanciation. Sociologias [online]. 2010, n.23, pp.46-73. ISSN 1517-4522. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-45222010000100004.
This paper identifies the concepts of ideology and discourse in the works of Marx and Foucault, respectively. It summarizes the Marxist analysis of the reversal of the laws of property as a consequence of the destruction of a specific ideology; and presents the archeology of the doctor-patient relationship, from the work of Foucault, as an example of the configuration of a particular discursive field. To conclude, the paper points to a distanciation and a convergence between the concepts in question.
Keywords : Ideology; Discourse; Marx, K. (1818-1883); Foucault, M. (1926-1984).
