ABSTRACT
Foucault analyses statements, words, texts and works with regard to the distinctive order of knowledge and language of each age. He considers the formation and transformation of knowledge and language through rejecting the view of root and continuity. His challenging the conception of subject, his treating work and author as positions constituted, distributed and proliferated by anonymous unities are constant themes in Foucault's studies. Foucault investigates how a certain order of language is formed and changed through an archaeological and archival perspective and through rejecting the conceptions of continuity, root and subject he reveals the arbitrary and historical dimension of knowledge and language. In this article, it is emphasized that Foucault's analyses of knowledge and language as well as work and subject, as functions of power make him differentiated from the post-structuralist views that give priority to what is considered as linguistic and textual.
