Relations II, 61ff
Relations/Relationships/Discourse/Foucault: are not themselves present in the object. They are not developed during an analysis. They do not determine the inner constitution of the object, but what allows it to appear.
Primary relations: one finally knows that there are relationships between the bourgeois family and judicial categories that can be analyzed for themselves.
Secondary relations: relationships formulated in discourse itself. The relations between primary and secondary relationships are the real relations of discourse.

Relations: the discursive relations are not internal to the discourse. They do not connect the terms and the words among each other. But they are also not external, they do not restrict the discourse and do not impose a form on it. They also characterize not the language, not the conditions of the discourse, but the discourse itself as practice.
