What is the Purpose of a Philosophy of the Apparatuses? [Spanish]
The concept of apparatus has turned in a common notion within the Human Sciences. Based on Michel Foucault’s ideas, there has been an important reflection about this concept recently. This paper seeks to point out some lines of investigation that have been established by Foucault´s philosophy of the apparatus. I stress, specially, some investigations undertaken by Ian Hacking and Arnold Davidson and some works by Nikolas Rose. On the other hand, it is stated that the philosophy of apparatus is aimed at carrying out a historical ontology, that is to say, thinking about how the interaction between knowledge, technologies, institutions and humans produce certain kinds of people.
