How can job knowledge or technical expertise be a form of power or authority?
Power is often defined as the capacity to influence others' behavior, to get others to do what challengers want, rather than what the initial parties themselves wants. Expertise is merely the skill of an expert. Foucault (1977), bekieved that knowledge is always a form of power, but he took it a step further and told us that knowledge can be gained from power, producing it, not preventing it. Through observation, new knowledge is produced. In this view, knowledge is forever connected to power. Knowledge, once used to regulate the conduct of others, entails constraint, regulation and the discipling of practice. Thus, there is no power relation without the correlative constitution of a field of knowledge, nor any knowledge that does not presuppose and constitute at the same time, power.
