It is necessary to determine that what he wants to mean with "classical time" and "modern time". In inclusion of his archeological analysis, he said there are three historical stages in the Archeology of Knowledge that this book is the explanation of archeological method which was applied to his books History of Madness, The Birth of the Clinic and Words and Things. In each stage he ascribes a total episteme that is composed from "a priori" principles which directs and determines. While the first episteme has continued from middle age to renaissance that produced similarity between things, the second episteme or classical age continued from xvıı. Century to xvııı. Century , produce knowledge from differences between things. Under the solidarity of continuity, differences that are placed in a frame gains meaning and order. From the end of xvııı. Century to the begininig of xx. Century the subject of is "human" and "human science" the third episteme or modern times.
