Knowledge. A Michel Foucault Quote.

“What’s worth the doggedness of knowledge, if it’s only to carry out the acquisition of knowledge, and not, in a certain way and as far as possible, bring a wandering to the one who knows?

There are moments in life, when the question to know if we can think differently than we think, and perceive differently than we see, is indispensable to go on looking, to go on thinking”.

Michel Foucault

“Que serait l’acharnement du savoir s’il ne devait assurer que l’acquisition des connaissances, et non pas, d’une certaine façon et autant que faire se peut, l’égarement de celui qui connaît ?

Il y a des moments dans la vie où la question de savoir si on peut penser autrement qu’on ne pense et percevoir autrement qu’on ne voit est indispensable pour continuer à regarder ou à réfléchir”.
