Philósophos - Revista de Filosofia 15 (2):10-5216 (2010)

According to Foucault, all discursive production implies some kind of will to knowledge. We propose to investigate the type of discourse produced by the philosopher and the type of will that it implies. Understand the speech of Foucault as an experiment that correlates what is said as truth and subjectivity explains what the philosopher himself spoke about this subject. In this paper, we investigated the type of discourse produced by the philosopher and the type of will or subjectivity that underpins it. We will see that the discursive production of Foucault can be a proof that what we are and what we say are not restricted to the order of submission, appeasement, identity and universality. For Foucault, subjectivity is in constant formation and transformation and what we say not only gives us access to truth, but, above all, change our way of being
