In the “Archaeology of Knowledge,” Michel Foucault’s description of discourses takes the analogy of transparent language frameworks that include ideas, shared vocabularies, and values. Within the general framework of analysis, Foucault’s archaeology of the knowledge problem clearly targets the implied critique of epistemological occurrence of the problem. According to the writer, “How do we know what we know?” arises as an inquiry into the human understanding of a particular problem. While the genesis of the problem does not place itself in the basis of inquiry, locating a problem, according to Foucault, results from the human mind as well as its operations. In the pursuit of knowledge, it is prudent to rid ourselves of an array of ideologies, eradicate existing discontinuities, and attain a versatile platform for interrogation.
