"A progressive politics is a politics which recognises the historical and specified conditions of a practise, whereas other politics recognise only ideal necessities, univocal determinations and the free interplay of individual initiatives. A progressive politics defines, within a practise, possibilities for transformation and the play of dependencies between those transformations, whereas other politics rely upon the uniform abstraction of change, or the thaumaturgic presence of genius."

- Michel Foucault
