This research aims to analyze the relationships that Foucault's approach to history in The Order of Things maintains with Nietzsche's philosophy. Stressing the strength of influence less than the strength of an interpretation, we highlight the association that Foucault makes between the death of God and the death of a man in order to choose this event as a point of reference as opposed to a history founded on philosophical anthropology. In this sense, we would like to demonstrate how the fundamental reading that Foucault makes of Nietzsche in The Order of Things draws the articulation of the experience of time with language, in order to make possible the writing of a history not submitted to the figure of a man.
