In your opinion, is there some kind of connection, or
relation, or influence between the theory of l'enonce
(of Foucault) and The Being (of Heiddeger)? It seems
to me that the theory of l'enonce is influenced by
Heidegger, because the being of H. is somehow
non-personal, anonymous and is previous in its
relation with the concrete things.
So is l'enonce of Foucault: it is non-personal
,previous and is nessecary sircumstance for any serie
of sighns to recieve understandable shape.
In general, this theory reminds me of Heidegger.
Please, let me know about your opinion! Ill appreciate
Ofcourse, i cant pay you for your opinion, but if you
insist, we can do something about it:-)))))))
