372). If archaeology attends to discursive practices, genealogy assumes a much broader vantage. It looks behind discursive practices to their extradiscursive setting, to the milieux from which they are excluded or in which their products are deployed. It looks not just for the descent of things but also for the emergence of the boundaries between them. What it confronts are "forces" and the "hazardous play of dominations" (p. 376). To aesthetic or archaeological analyses of the relations among forms, genealogy unites an analysis of those "relations of contrary forces" which constitute the actual stuff of history, actual events.
476). Error, in its turn, is generative of both "human thought and its history": The opposition of the true and the false, the values that are attributed to the one and the other, the power effects that different societies and different institutions link to that division - all this may be nothing but the most belated response to that possibility of error inherent in life. If the history of the sciences is discontinuous-that is, if it can be analyzed only as a series of "corrections," as a new distribution that never sets free, finally and forever, the terminal moment of truth-the reason, again, is that "error" constitutes not a neglect or a delay of the promised fulfillment but the dimension peculiar to the life of human beings and indispensable to the duration [temps] of the species.
These avatars, which gradually traced the dividing line between the artist's deeds and the deeds of heroes, give rise to the possibility of an ambiguous stance (maintained through a composite vocabulary) which embraces both the work and what the work is not. The space cleared in the decline of heroism, a space whose nature was suspected by the sixteenth century, and one that our present culture cheerfully investigates in keeping with its basic forgetfulness, is ultimately occupied by the "madness" of the artist; it is a madness that identifies the artist with his work in rendering him alien to othersfrom all those who remain silent-and it also situates the artist outside his work when it blinds him to the things he sees and makes him deaf to even his own words.
