Discourse Approach to New Year Speeches of the Presidents of South Korea

CEESOK Journal of Korean Studies. 2016. No. 16. P. 17-29.

This article deals with the approach to make archives statements of Korean politicians through the theory of M. Foucault. M. Foucault said the discourse goes beyond a standard text generation, the description of discourse is opposed to the history of thought and strives to show why an apparent discourse cannot be variant, why it is incompatible with the other discourse and takes ‘the place which cannot be substituted by any other discourse’. His theory gives an opportunity to show the real reasons why Korean politicians use special statements, which have an effect on the addressee without reference to the time and space.
