You are refering to "La scene de la philosophie", april 1978 (where M. Watanabe interviews Foucault) It is important to remark that F doesnot describes himself as a philosopher. As far as it is shown on the spanish translation, F says that his is interested in the event, not in eternity, and thats what doesnot make him a philosopher in the classic way, or maybe not even a philosopher at all, or a good philosopher. I think that this statement is rather diferent to say that he is putting himself as a philosopher, but that doesnot mean either that he is putting himself as something else than a nietzschean thinker. Those days F was very careful to take some margins about himself (i could bet that by that time he noticed that he was somehow sick) and other philosophers (to me it sounds that he was taking distance about Deleuze, but not in a combative way: on contrary, to say that D is not like hime, that he is really a philosopher -remarking that he (i mean F) is not"-, but
this sounds not as a "victim discourse", F ment that)

Asunto: [Foucault-L] DE 234 article?
does anyone have the reference for the dits et ecrits publication #234? or
know if it has been translated into english? according to the 'event' entry
in the "key concepts" glosssary in clare's book (2005, _michel foucault_,
p136) it is where Foucault describes himself as a philosopher of the event.
(I am organising some stuff for a reading group on Foucault's concept of the
"event" (through Deleuze and others) and secondly on his eventalization
methodology as minor science of the archive.)
