Synchronic Unconscious II: Things

What, in short, we wish to do is dispense with ‘things.’ To ‘depresentify’ them. To conjure up their rich, heavy, immediate plentitude, which we usually regard as the primitive law of a discourse that has become divorced from it through error, oblivion, illusion, ignorance, or the inertia of beliefs and traditions, or even the perhaps unconscious desire not to see and not to speak.

–Michel Foucualt, The Archaeology of Knowledge (p. 47)
