Foucault I 85
Similarity/Descartes/DescartesVsSimilarity/Foucault: other type of criticism, confused mixture that needs to be analyzed in terms of identity/difference, measure, order.
Descartes does not reject comparisons.
Transitivity (a = c) is only possible through comparisons.
Any knowledge through comparisons.
Only two forms of comparison: measure and order.
Units and multiplicities can be measured, i.e. continuous and discontinuous units. Order. ((s) without reference to externalities): from inside out.
Measure ((s): from outside to inside (>division).
