Summary Puts The Archaeology of Knowledge at the heart of Foucault's thought David Webb reveals the extent to which Foucault's approach to language in The Archaeology of Knowledge was influenced by the mathematical sciences, adopting a mode of thought indebted to thinkers in the scientific and epistemological traditions. By aligning his thought with the challenge to Kantian philosophy from mathematics and science in the late-19th and early-20th centuries, he shows how Foucault established his own perspective on the future of critical philosophy. Key features Sheds new light on a crucial period of Foucault's work Highlights Foucault's relation to thinkers such as Cavailles and Serres
