The Order of Things by Michel Foucault

"The Order of Things" is a philosophical exploration of the historical changes in the human sciences, including economics, natural history, and philology. The author delves into the concept of 'epistemes' or the unconscious rules that govern the way people perceive the world, and how these have changed over the centuries. The book challenges the idea that knowledge has progressively improved over time, instead suggesting that each era has its own unique framework for understanding and interpreting the world.
