Michel Foucault, lecteur de la philosophie analytique (Tunis, 1967)

Abstract : The recent availability of part of Michel Foucault's reading files on the National Library's digital site (Gallica), in particular his notes on the Analytic philosophy of language, allows us to approach in a new light the genesis of the method of Discourse Analysis set up in L'archéologie du savoir (1969) and its implementation in his first courses at the Collège de France. The present work, after presenting an overview of his files, which are particularly diverse in terms of the number of authors and themes, proposes a reading path within these files that situates the contours of the definition of Analysis. It then presents the way in which these files differentiate Analytic philosophy and Continental philosophy. It is then possible to delineate a close relationship between Foucault's interest in the analytical characterisation of Meaning as function and his Discourse functionalism complementary to Archaeological description.
