The will to power and the politics of ressentiment -- 2.) Power/knowledge -- 3.) The critique of ideology -- 4.) The practice of criticism -- 5.) Hermeneutical ethical theory -- 6.) Conclusion . . . . . . . . .The Ways of Power advances a hermeneutical conception of ethics, one oriented particularly toward questions of power and the critique of power in the aftermath of foundationalism. Bringing into mutual interrogation such disparate traditions as hermeneutics, liberalism, critical theory and postmodernism, and such figures as Gadamer, Ricoeur, Habermas, Foucault, Nietzsche, and Artistotle, Fairfield argues that the principal question of ethics is no longer how to ground practices and judgments on a secure epistemological foundation.
