Genealogy combines two analytical perspectives in consequence: besides a diachronic form of analysis that explains the transition and change of systems of meaning, it also entails a synchronic dimension of analysis, which describes the always specific rationality or strategy of a particular system of power (Suárez Müller 2004). This points to the close relationship between institutions, dis- 41 courses and practices, and Foucault identifies as the major challenge to his further work to define this power-knowledge complex.

Archaeology is complemented 10 Though Lemke (1997) criticises that it is in particular this aspect that remains unspecific within the AK. 39 by a – Nietzschean – genealogical approach that moves to the centre of Foucault’s thought. It focuses on the emergence and becoming powerful of discourses, rather than on their inner constitution and coherence. Towards genealogy In the text Nietzsche, Genealogy, History that marks the beginning of this methodological shift, Foucault outlines his understanding of genealogy, drawing extensively on Nietzsche (Foucault 1977).

This is what is behind Foucault’s claim that the strategies of power are at once intentional and non-subjective, that ‘it is often the case that no one is there to have invented them, and few who can be said to have formulated them: an implicit characteristic of the great anonymous, almost unspoken strategies which coordinate the loquacious tactics whose “inventors” or decision makers are often without hypocrisy’ (Foucault 1998: 95). We can understand this better by means of an example. Foucault describes the interplay of changes to the rent and wage payment systems and the introduction of housing and educational programmes in France in the 19th century, which made it more difficult for industry workers to move from one factory or town to another.
