Good Quote on Power

Power is articulated through social practices that produce the “truths” that make up our self-concepts and the institutions in which our selves are embedded. Power is not exercised by sovereign individuals, but is located in social practices and the relationships on which such practices are built (Huzzard, 2004, p. 352).

Very Foucauldian.
