Abstract | Full Text

Neste artigo propõe-se a leitura do pensamento de Foucault a partir da categoria jogo de verdade, enunciada no final do seu percurso teórico. Para tal procura-se estabelecer as proximidades e diferenças entre esta categoria e a de jogos de linguagem, enunciada por Wittgenstein em "Investigações filosóficas". Desta maneira Foucault procurou realizar sua crítica à tradição metafísica.<br>This article proposes a reading of Foucault's thinking based on the "games of truth" category enunciated at the end of his theoretical trajectory. The attempt is made to establish similarities and differences between this category and that of language games, as stated by Wittgenstein in Philosophical Investigations. Foucault took this approach to conduct his critique of metaphysical tradition.
