…The pre-conceptual field allows the emergence of discursive regularities and constraints that have made possible the heterogeneous multiplicity of concepts, and, beyond these the profusion of the themes, beliefs, and representations with which one usually deals when one is writing the history of ideas.

In order to analyze the rules for the formation of objects, one must neither… embody them in things, nor relate them to the domain of words; in order to analyze the formation of enunciative types, one must relate them neither to the knowledge of the subject, nor to the psychological individuality. Similarly, to analyze the formation of concepts, one must relate them neither to the horizon of ideality, nor to the empirical progress of ideas.

— Michel Foucault, The Archeology of Knowledge
