Les mots et les choses: Une archéologie des sciences by Michel Foucault

By Michel Foucault

Les sciences humaines d'aujourd'hui sont plus que du domaine du savoir : déjà des pratiques, déjà des associations. Michel Foucault examine leur apparition, leurs liens réciproques et los angeles philosophie qui les supporte. C'est tout récemment que l''homme' a fait son apparition dans notre savoir. Erreur de croire qu'il était objet de curiosité depuis des millénaires : il est né d'une mutation de notre tradition. Cette mutation, Michel Foucault l'étudie, à partir du XVIIe siècle, dans les trois domaines où le langage classique - qui s'identifiait au Discours - avait le privilège de pouvoir représenter l'ordre des choses : grammaire générale, examine des richesses, histoire naturelle. Au début du XIXe siècle, une philologie se constitue, une biologie également, une économie politique. Les choses y obéissent aux lois de leur propre devenir et non plus à celles de los angeles représentation. Le règne du Discours s'achève et, à los angeles position qu'il laisse vide, l''homme' apparaît - un homme qui parle, vit, travaille, et devient ainsi objet d'un savoir possible.

Il ne s'agit pas là d'une 'histoire' des sciences humaines, mais d'une archéologie de ce qui nous est contemporain. Et d'une moral sense critique : automobile le jour, prochain peut-être, où ces stipulations changeront derechef, l''homme' disparaîtra, libérant l. a. possibilité d'une pensée nouvelle.
