The human sciences hold a particular place on knowledge's field. Due to its emergency from general changes in the epistemological and political-administrative structure of the nineteenth century, they acquire a specific configuration that locates them at the crossing of several others knowledge, as emphasized by historian Michel Foucault. Besides that, they afford another peculiarity, which is characterized in its activity by a close relationship to what the philosopher Gilles Deleuze calls the "representational model". From the analyses of some works of these two thinkers, we will observe how the human sciences operate an update of the representational model through the standardization of the individuals.

Keywords : human sciences; Foucault; Deleuze; representation; standardization.
