Foucault, Michel. The Archaeology of Knowledge: and the Discourse on Language. Translated by Alan Sheridan. New York: Vintage Books, 1982.

The Archaeology of Knowledge (L’Archéologie du savoir, 1969; English translation, 1972) is a supplement to The Order of Things. In it, Foucault focuses on the human sciences as autonomous systems of discourse without analyzing social institutions.
