Michel Foucault. The Order of Things -- Criticism and interpretation, François Jacob. The Logic of Life -- Criticism and interpretation, François Jacob. The Statue Within -- Criticism and interpretation


My intent is to examine the interplay between Michel Foucault’s The Order of Things, originally published in France as Les Mots et les choses (Words and Things) in 1966, François Jacob’s history of heredity, The Logic of Life, published in France in 1970, and his autobiography, The Statue Within, 1987.
