These are points that I can make from Foucault though they are not necessarily what he has been used for in recent years. Furthermore, this is only based on a reading of Discipline and punish (1978 ) and The order of discourse (1971).
Thus, and controversially:
Note that I am not so much interested in "power" except to the extent that "correction" is one of the means through which a particular patterning of institutions remains relevant for the persons that are captured by these institutions (or who must conduct their lives through these institutions).
Thus I have a strong sense of the limits of the panopticon as a model for sociability. A model of society (prison, school, etc.) must take into account
Foucault does not deny the possibility of such interactions but he provides little guidance in integrating this activity within the general model.
