What is Power? Definitions
Robert Hewitt, Manager, United Kingdom, Member
French and Raven detail varieties of social power, but what is 'power', is it Foucault's action that requires two consenting parties - where there is the possibility of an individual decision and personal choice - or is 'power' more Weberian with clear structures and bureaucratic control, where power is exercised visibly and people are told what to do?
 

 
What is Power

I think French and Raven used "power" in Foucault´s meaning. Weber refers to the government power more from a theoretical point of view.
