Sounds like the introduction Foucault wrote to the English translation of
Canguilhem's The Normal and the Pathological (D. Reidel, 1978). French
version is text 219 of Dits et ecrits, this was published in slightly
amended form as 'La vie: l'experience et la science', Revue de metaphysique
et de morale, 90: 1, 1985 (Dits et ecrits, text 361).

>devise accounts of the subject that centre on experiences and their

>systems of knowledge that centre on concepts and their relations.'
>Can anyone tell me where to find such an idea in Foucualt's work?
