Abstract: The paper deals with Foucault’s study of The Birth of the Clinic in terms of genealogical and archeological discursive ethos of medical knowledge. Foucault’s gaze refers to a discourse brought about by diverse and disparate techniques and practices involved in the production of the new field of knowledge at the onset of the 18th century. However, the schism between the language of fantasy and that of direct constant visibility questions one’s ability to establish a certain semantic and linguistic shift in the point of view as to lay claim to a rational, that is to say scientific discourse. Hence, Foucault’s study The Birth of the Clinic relates to the gaze of a much larger scope and range. It is considered and re-considered within the historical and cultural frames of constructing concepts, discourses and experimental acts replacing and displacing space(s) of human, historical and institutional formations of knowledge. The body of medical knowledge is, thus, treated as SF per se, cyborg-like “creature” in its own right.
