Q  U E ST IO N S O F IN T E R PR E TAT I O N A N D I N F L U E N C E The primary aim of this work is not to provide an authoritative reading of Heidegger and Foucault in all respects, nor of the relationship between the two at a biographical level, but rather to use each creatively to a particular purpose. I do not seek another tracing of the “Heideggerian” influences on Foucault, and even less a total synthesis of the two. Not only would such a project be presumptuous—obscuring the originality and depth of the works of each—but it would take us too far from the real target.

It is quite a different matter to say that the already existing ethical relations between entities establishes the ontological field in which a subject can emerge at all. In the first instance, the norms are there, at an exterior distance, and the task is to find a way of appropriating or refusing them, establishing a practical relationship to them. 3 6 P O T E NTI A LI TY A ND A UTHENTI CI TY The epistemological frame is presupposed in this encounter, one in which a subject encounters moral norms and must find his way within them.

Since it is a general theme of the work presented here that Foucault’s late writings converge in some respects with Heidegger, the details of this reappearing influence are worked out in the body of the text. Here, however, it is worth pointing to several important markers of Foucault’s own understanding of this influence. In 1980, Foucault signaled that in some ways his studies of the modes of subjectification might be read as complementary to Heidegger’s own analysis of technē and the modes of objectification: For Heidegger, it was through an increasing obsession with techné as the only way to arrive at an understanding of objects, that the West lost touch with Being.
