Ihmisen kuolema I. Ihmistieteet vailla ihmistä

The Death of Man I. Human Sciences without Man

The article explores the theme of death of man in the French Thought of the 60’s and especially in Michel Foucault’s book  Les Mots et les Choses. The book as the event of thought is explored in its relation to the discursive fields  (philosophical, methodological, scientific, historical)  that constituted the conditions of possibility of its own discourse. The book is also related to Foucault’s overall project of Kantian-Nietzschean critical philosophy. Here the book is seen as a special experien­ce of order, which became transformative experience for Foucault’s own thought and set it to move towards a new form of critical history of thought.
