Here's the word "freedom" being used again. Nietszche did a genealogy of
morals. Wendy Brown did a genealogy of identity politics (See her book: States
of Injury (1995) Princeton University Press), anyone watching tv commercials
today and comparing the use of the word "revolutionary" now in front of new
products or fads and thinking back to the word's use in the 1960s must be
forced to some thinking. now...

Nik Rose has written an interesting genealogy of the word "freedom", more than
just the easy punch against the use of the word by liberals ("freedom of
speech, freedom of religion, freedom, etc") but actually looks at the use and
importance of the word in more radical political projects Nikolas Rose, Powers
of freedom: Reframing political thought (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,
1999).
