The abundance of light and power condems their holder to not love. But not loving doesn t exempt desire; Nietzsche opened paths which denounce that we don’t really reach the desired object but its representation, which he criticizes. Michel Foucault trod sorne of those paths. Words and things is an intimately Nietzschean book, and is more subtly Dionysian than the texts about sexuality or power. Nietzsche’s fit of laughter, that’s heard at the end of the book, accouncs for it and crawns one of many of Foucault’s Nietzschean driftings.
