PART TWO: The Repressive Hypothesis
1 The Incitement to Discourse
There is no binary division to be made between what one says and what one does not say; we must try to determine the difference ways of not saying such things, how those who can and those who cannot speak of them are distributed, which type of discourse is authorized, or which form of discretion is required in either case. There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (27)
