Archeology as Structuralist Philosophy
AbstractThe article discusses Foucault's “structuralist moment” at the time of the publication of The Order of Things. In an interview Foucault introduces the notion of “structuralist philosophy”, which he understands as an analysis and diagnostic of the present. This orientation of philosophy on the basis of structuralist thinking is discussed regarding the concrete case of Foucauldian archeology, which presents itself as a split between historical research and theory of the event. This split is linked to the problem of the relation between continuity and discontinuity in history.
