That quote is from _Discipline and Punish_ (Vintage 1979) page 31.
>I wonder if someone could help me out of this pickle. i have lost the
>citation to this note that i took from a reading of Foucault--i thought it
>was from _Genealogy_, but i have re-read the darn thing 3 times and still
>can't find the passage. The passage is where Foucault is writing about
>history, and makes the point that history is meaningless for him "if one
>means by that writing a history of the past in terms of the present."
>Instead he argues that history has meaning only "if one means writing the
>history of the present."
>I'll be very grateful for help with this.
