Foucault introduced his unusual use of the word discipline' in 1972. It signalled work in progress between his writings on knowledge and power, and the fuller, more famous, account in Discipline and Punish. Discipline and Punish showed Foucault at his most provocative and challenging. Perhaps more than any other work it won him infamy in some eyes. Foucault's conviction was that no micro-group existed in its own safe, protected environment. One way to get into Foucault's later ideas on power relations in groups is to take a brief digression into two key terms appearing earlier which relates so closely to disciplinary power. Foucault came to employ the word archaeology' to sum up the practice of delving into the past with a view to power-spotting. In 1971 the word geneaology' had appeared in Foucauldian thought to strengthen yet further the attack on a grand narrative of the human march toward the heights of history.
