Two versions of the same Magritte drawing, Ceci n'est pas une pipe. The first version is already disturbing and raises a series of questions: the contrast-ratio of images and words in Magritte, the meaning of negation. But the other version is even more disconcerting, because there are two pipes, one suspended in a vacuum and the other inscribed on a cloth: the questions multiply.

For Foucault, this essay on Magritte is an occasion to return to the themes of Words and Things. In fact, it originated from some suggestions made by Magritte himself (as shown by his letters, published as an appendix) and is closely linked to the major work of the French philosopher: his treatment goes beyond the confines of the critical essay to invest "the oldest oppositions of our alphabetic civilization: show and name, figure and say, reproduce and articulate, imitate and signify, imitate and read ».
