Abstract

Summarising the importance for modern philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche’s ‘genealogical challenge’, Michel Foucault writes in 1971:

[I]f the genealogist refuses to extend his faith in metaphysics, if he listens to history, he finds that there is something ‘altogether different’ behind things: not a timeless and essential secret but the secret that they have no essence, or that their essence was fabricated in a piecemeal fashion from alien forms.

(1998, p. 371)
