Riassunto: In France, a country that awards its intellectuals the status other countries give their rock stars, Michel Foucault was part of a glittering generation of thinkers, one which also included Sartre, de Beauvoir and Deleuze. One of the great intellectual heroes of the twentieth century, Foucault was a man whose passion and reason were at the service of nearly every progressive cause of his time. From law and order, to mental health, to power and knowledge, he spearheaded public awareness of the dynamics that hold us all in thrall to a few powerful ideologies and interests. Arguably his finest work, Archaeology of Knowledge is a challenging but fantastically rewarding introduction to his ideas.
From the Back Cover: Madness, sexuality, power, knowledge-are these facts of life or simply parts of speech? In a series of works of astonishing brilliance, historian Michel Foucault excavated the hidden assumptions that govern the way we live and the way we think. The Archaeology of Knowledge begins at the level of 'things said' and moves quickly to illuminate the connections between knowledge, language, and action in a style at once profound and personal.

Foucault writes: "What was my aim in writing this book? Did I wish to explain what I had wanted to do in my earlier BOOKS, in which so many things still remained obscure? Not altogether, not exactly. By going a little farther in the same direction, and coming back, as if by a new turn in the spiral, towards the point at which I had set out, I hoped to show the position from which I was speaking; to map the space that makes these investigations, and others that I may never accomplish, possible: in short, to give meaning to the word archaeology, which I had so far left empty. It IS a dangerous word, for it seems to imply traces that have fallen outside time and are now frozen into silence. In fact, it is an attempt to describe discourses. Not books (in relation to their authors), not theories (with their structures and coherence), but those familiar yet enigmatic groups of statements that are known as medicine, political economy, and biology. I would like to show that these unities form a number of autonomous, but not independent, domains, governed by rules, but in perpetual transformation, anonymous and without a subject, but imbuing a great many individual works. And where the history of ideas tried to uncover by deciphering texts, the secret movements of thought (its slow progression, its conflicts and retreats, the obstacles that it has overcome), I would like to reveal in its specificity, the level of ‘things said': the condition of their emergence, the forms of their accumulation and connexion, the rules of their transformation, the discontinuities that articulate them. The domain of things said is what is called the archive; the role of archaeology is to analyse that archive." ~Also in this volume is Professor Foucault's inaugural address at the College de France upon his assuming the chair of Professor of History and Systems of Thought.
