It is not, or not only, a history of the will to know. It evokes other relations, and other forces. One of these latter-though Foucault mentions it only rarely - is the volonte de verite, the "will to truth," a will not strategic but curious. To another of them, Foucault never quite gave a name, IIIIIS sc 11'1 XXXVIII Introduction but it might roughly be called the "will to become," a "poetic" will that exercises itself on the psyche, on the self, for the sake of selfrealization.
