Foucault: Order of Things

14 October 2019


Thought has already ‘left’ itself in its own being as early as the nineteenth century; it is no longer theoretical. As soon as it functions it offends or reconciles, attracts or repels, breaks, dissociates, unites or reunites; it cannot help but liberate and enslave. […] Can we say that it is not known by those who, in their profound stupidity, assert that there is no philosophy without political choice, that all thought is either 'progressive’ or 'reactionary’? Their foolishness is to believe that all thought 'expresses’ the ideology of a class; their involuntary profundity is that they point directly at the modern mode of being of thought
