A translation of this piece (into english) can be found in 'The Cambridge
Companion to Foucault'.

Happy hunting


p.s beware of erasing the differences between Foucault's texts

"It is true that we cannot imagine a great philosopher of whom it could not
be said that he has changed what it means to think; he has 'thought
differently' (as Foucault put it). When we find several philosophies in
the same author, is it not because they have changed plane and once more
found a new image?"
