SILVEIRA, Fernando de Almeida  and  SIMANKE, Richard Theisen. Wild-disciplined speechs: the psis knowledges in the Foucault's archaelogy. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.3, pp.571-578. ISSN 0102-3772.

Michel Foucault describes the diversity of systems and the set of discontinuities in the history of common sense discourses, pre-scientific and scientific, among them that of psychology. This research studies the order of Foucaut's discourse about psychology in the following works: About the Archeology of Sciences- An Answer to the Epistemological Circle, The Archeology of Knowledge and The Order of Discourse. It was verified that Foucault criticizes the assumption of a continuous, unitary and totalizing history of psychology and argues that in its developmental process, psychology was pluralized by multiple truth sets of the history of discourses. It was concluded that Foucault highlights the whiteout of the boundaries in psychology's discursive field, as well as in other discourses in the history of human thought, in an interrelated way.

Keywords : Foucault; Psychology; psis knowledge; speech.
