The Archaeology of Knowledge (French: L'archéologie du savoir) is a 1969 methodological and historiographical treatise by the French philosopher Michel Foucault, in which the author promotes "archaeology" or the "archaeological m. .

Foucault’s Archaeology of Knowledge does not deserve its reputation for being so difficult that it is not even worth reading. Once one grasps Foucault’s project the text follows rather easily. I personally read it in two days with my nine year old’s tv shows as background noise. A subject does not consist in truths waiting to be discovered. Any such truths are inseparable from the discourse that governs what can and cannot be broached, the criteria by which truth is determined, etc. Foucault goes so far as to deny the commonly held idea that the world and its contents are fundamentally rational. I cannot follow him here but I can appreciate the brilliance with which it is articulated.

Michel Foucault (1926–1984) was a prominent twentieth-century French philosopher, who wrote prolifically. Many of his works were translated into English. Works from his later years remain unpublished. In French, almost all of Foucault's shorter writings, published interviews and miscellany have been published in a collection called Dits et écrits, originally published in four volumes in 1994, latterly in only two volumes.

Struggling with this but maybe it's because i have a mental block about Foucault!!

Foucault's Archeology of Knowledge builds the foundation of Foucault's work. Not an easy read but in my opinion essential in understanding the broader purpose of Foucault's earlier and later works. The work itself stands alone as an original approach to flushing out Truth and power relations. It draws heavily on others work (Nietzsche) but still is very unique (hence a lot of critics/scholars difficulty in attempts at categorizing Foucault).

This volume is a great introduction to Foucoult's thought. As other reviewers have said, he takes ideas he broached in his earlier works and further develops them here. That said, this is not light reading. If you want just a quick distillation of Foucoult's ideas, you would do better looking elsewhere. Foucoult wants to make you think and think deeply about this whole concept called knowledge. In that he succeeds. The down side is that he has so many ideas in his head, he does not always connect the dots. You, the reader, will at times have to do that but Foucoult has given you enough substance that you can, if you are versed in the subject matter at all, do that well. The version I read was the Kindle version. Technically, that worked perfectly. I was able to easily highlight and take notes from the Kindle app on my iPad. My bottom line, if you want some serious reading that will force you to think, try this book. The Kindle version is, for me, a great choice.

wonderful service received from amazon.
foucault's logic is a bit like a spider web with facts spaced at intercises , thus relating every represeentation to forward desired truths and ambiguities.

My sympathies to anyone who has to read this. This was something I had attempted to read on recommendation of a professor. Later on in my graduate studies I had to read it. It is a required reading for anyone studying rhetoric. If you can get through it, you are destined for greatness. It is reading that requires intense concentration and no interruptions!
Moonworm
This is a must-read book for the reader who wants to understand the thought of Foucault.
