Term of the day

commentary

discourse that paraphrases and explicates the surface meaning of a text. Foucault criticizes commentary for its exaggerated dependence on meaning available to the author. (Dreyfus and Rabinow, 123) (Commentary is to be contrasted with what Paul Ricoeur calls a "hermeneutics of suspicion" - or comments which are based on our suspicions given information other than that given to us by the author. Understand, however, that for Foucault, the hidden meaning that is uncovered by a hermeneutics of suspicion, that is a genealogy , is not entirely trustworthy either.)
