  • Descrizione: this chapter presents a critical figure related to the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. it talks about michel foucault's connection with the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. few of the key figures associated with postmodernism have forged reputations as historians. it is perhaps understandable that the body of archival analysis that foucault produced over the course of his lifetime is championed for its attention to the historical specificity of its objects of analysis so much so that he has often been approved, particularly in cultural studies, as presenting a materialist alternative to the apparent “ahistoricism” of saussurean semiotics and the poststructuralism that spawned in its wake. foucault's archaeological and genealogical investigations introduce the possibility of difference and transformation into “human” institutions by way of showing up the discontinuity and dispersal, the accidents, ruptures and mutations, which constitute the very fabric of history.
