“Variations” is a concept within the work of Michel Foucault, a French philosopher and social theorist. Foucault’s ideas on variations often relate to the ways in which power and knowledge intersect, how they are exercised and resisted, and how they change over time. His work delves into how different historical, social, and cultural contexts produce variations in the ways power operates and is experienced. These variations are central to his analysis of disciplines, institutions, and the dynamics of power in society.
