CASTRO-GOMEZ, Santiago. Michel Foucault and the Coloniality of Power. Tabula Rasa [online]. 2007, n.6, pp.153-172. ISSN 1794-2489.

Contrary to most of the statements associated with postcolonial studies and to some versions of the modernity/coloniality perspective, this article argues for the relevance of a hierarchic theory of power, inspired by Foucault’s lesser commonly read Lessons in the College of France, to understand the articulations along different planes of the modern/colonial world system.

Keywords : postcolonial studies; hierarchic theory; coloniality; world system; Foucault.
