The proposed project is based on my doctoral dissertation in which I reconstructed Foucault’s discovery of Nietzsche’s philosophy in the 1950s and claimed that this crucial period in Foucault‘s intellectual biography holds the key to his philosophy of history. I argue that Nietzsche’s maxim to replace metaphysical philosophy with historical philosophy explains more than Foucault’s critique of philosophy and science, for it can also account for the seemingly incoherent character of Foucault’s own oeuvre.
