Author Item Summary Meta data
I 25
Way of being/Foucault: Thesis: This is not to say that reason has made progress, but that the way of being of things and order has been fundamentally changed, which offers the thing knowledge by dividing it.
I 26
Archeology/Foucault: Archeology defines systems of simultaneity, something the series of necessary and sufficient mutations to describe the threshold of a new positivity.
56 ff
Signatures: signs of similarity. However, the system is not closed.
I 100f
Tableau/Foucault: the meaning will be given in the complete tableau of the signs.
If the existence of the sense stands entirely on the side of the sign, the whole functioning lies on the side of the signified.
I 109
Definition Natural History/Foucault: Science of characteristics that structure the continuity of nature and its intermeshing. Therein: money theory and value theory, also general grammar.
Definition mathesis/Foucault: science of equations, that is, of assignments and judgments, the science of truth.
Definition taxinomia/Foucault: Treats identity/difference. It is the science of structure and classes. It is the knowledge of beings.
Space in table form: most clearly in the form of the theory of language, classification, and money.
II 128ff
Definition "Referential"/Foucault: defines the possibilities of the emergence and delimitation of what gives the sentence its meaning. It is not produced by "realities" or "facts", but by possibility laws, of existence rules for the objects.
II 258
Definition positivities/Foucault: they show the rules by which a discursive practice can form subject groups, utterances, conceptual bundles, and series of theoretical choices. The elements thus formed do not constitute a science with a structure of defined idealism. Their system is certainly less accurate, but not a mere accumulation.
They are that of which a coherent proposition has been built, more or less precise descriptions are developed, verifications are made, and theories are developed. A preform.
II 265
Threshold of positivity: the moment when a discursive practice separates itself and gains its autonomy.
Threshold of epistemologization: makes use of verification and coherence norms.
Threshold of scientificity: construction laws of propositions.
Threshold of formalization: is achieved when the formal building is unfolded.
Archeology: explores the temporal distribution of these thresholds. It is, in fact, neither regular nor homogeneous. For example, the beginning of mathematics is less questioned as a historical event than as a principle of historicity.
Unhooking: in the economy particularly numerous:
II 267
Threshold of positivity in practice and theory of mercantilism. Separation into what is not yet, and what is ultimately scientific.
