Given Foucault's consistent specialise in the (Kantian) query of the chance for wisdom, the writer argues that his philosophical itinerary could be understood as a chain of makes an attempt to historicize the transcendental. In so doing, he seeks to discover a particular point that will establish those stipulations with out falling both into an far more than idealism (a de-historicized, subject-centered point of view exemplified for Foucault by means of Husserlian phenomenology) or of materialism (which might volume to analyzing those stipulations as ideological and hence because the impression of monetary selection via the infrastructure).

The writer concludes that, even if this challenge does unify Foucault's paintings and offers it its in particular philosophical size, not one of the techniques successively supplied (such because the épistémè, the ancient a priori, the regimes of fact, the video games of fact, and problematizations) manages to call those stipulations with out falling into the pitfalls that Foucault initially denounced as attribute of the "anthropological sleep"—various kinds of confusion among the historic and the transcendental. even if Foucault's paintings offers us with a hugely illuminating research of the main difficulties of post-Kantian philosophies, eventually it is still aporetic in that it additionally fails to beat them.
