    Abstract

    The goal of this paper is to establish a general framework to delimit the relation between the philosophical work of Michel Foucault and Geography. With this objective in mind, we focus in three key concepts of especial relevance for our discipline developed by the philosopher: discourse, history and power, all of them recognize the importance of space and geography in a more or less explicit way, as it is justified in this paper. Furthermore, we rediscover from Foucault's discourse the metaphoric use of a certain «spatial language» common to a poststructuralist perspective, in which the philosopher is included.
