ABSTRACT
The article discusses the two different uses of the term biopolitics including the provenances and meanings used by political scientists indebted to life sciences and those indebted to Foucauldian postmodern hermeneutics. It states that both postmodern and scientific biopolitics continue to increase the study of politics which is incomplete without the postmodern approaches to power, context and language. It suggests that both approaches in biopolitics are significant to political phenomena.
