Nietzsche says repeatedly that knowledge has no affinity with the world to be known. I will cite just one passage from ‘The Gay Sci­ence’, aphorism 109: “The total character of the world is chaos for all eternity-in the sense not of a lack of necessity but of a lack of order, arrangement, form , beauty, wisdom.” The world absolutely does not seek to imitate man; it knows no law. Let us guard against saying that there are laws in nature. Knowledge must struggle against a world without order, without connectedness, without form, without beauty, without wisdom, without harmony, and without law. That is the world that knowledge deals with. There is nothing in knowledge that enables it, by any right whatever, to know this world. It is not natural for nature to be known. Thus, between the instincts and knowledge, one finds not a continuity but, rather, a relation of struggle , domination, servitude, settlement. In the same way, there can be no relation of natural continuity between knowledge and the things that knowledge must know. There can only be a relation of violence, domination, power, and force, a relation of violation. Knowledge can only be a violation of the things to be known, and not a perception, a recognition, an identification of or with those things.  —Michel Foucault, Truth and Juridical Forms (via foucault-the-haters)
