Ethics I 389ff
Ethics/Foucault: outside of religious morality, the West has undoubtedly known only two forms of ethics:
Early: Stoicism, epicureism, divided into the order of the world, and by discovering the principles, derived from it a law of wisdom. (Even still in the 18th century).
Modernity: does not formulate morality, inasmuch as every imperative rests within thought and its movement to grasp the unthought. (Sic). (Kant is the crucial point).
