ABSTRACT
This study, although exploratory nature, want to check the possibilities of an ontology in the thought of Michel Foucault. This is on the assumption that, although Foucault has not directly addressed the issue of ontology, are, in his writings, which allow references put it as a question. It is understood, als , that the subject of ontology is related, on the one hand, with the theme of man and of the subject and, second, to ethics. Generally ethics in Foucault is discussed from the last writings, known as genealogy of ethics. The ontology is discussed from his writings of the 1980s, on Kant's Aufklärung. Ontology and ethics are thus concepts already explored in his thinking. Ethics is conceptualized by Foucault as the critical use of freedom, within the frames of knowledge - power. The notion of ontology is said to be man's history and the issue of the subject in its relation to the truth. As Foucault, it is an ontology of our historical being. But there is still clarify, in the author's thought, what, exactly, to be shown in history, what becomes history by becoming the subject, in the sense of ontology. The answer lies in the question of the man, before it is objectified as a figure of modernity.
