The attempts in this paper have as their first benchmark the approach of Foucauldian archeology. If we are to offer a first definition of archeology, then we can say that it is outlined as a philosophy of the event. The concept of “event” is central to Foucauldian thinking, because starting from here, Foucault will build a critique of all analyzes that would have subordinated it to a general meaning (cultural totality) or origin (transcendental subject or historical consciousness). What is meant here by the event? Or, to more clearly delimit the horizon of the following analyzes, by enunciation as an event? I think an answer to these questions may begin with a brief description of how the discourse before the Foucauldian enterprises was treated. Hermeneutics can be one example. I will refer below to authors such as Schleiermacher and Dilthey. The program of hermeneutics developed by the above-mentioned authors treats discourse as an insufficient environment. This means that a discursive sequence, in order to be understood, will have to be related to a non-discursive entity (such as consciousness, will and, in general, thinking). Thus, the analyzes of hermeneutics will aim, from the very beginning, at a space that goes beyond the manifest discourse. (The author)
