Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject German Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 9, Leiden University, course: Narrative, Voice and Fiction, language: English, abstract: Man in the Holocene is very much about a quest for or even the possibility to have a knowledge of the world. This is apparent in Geiser's efforts to fathom and order his surroundings by accumulating a wealth of knowledge represented by the considerable amount of secondary texts with which the main body of text is interlaced. Emphasis seems to be laid on man's finitude as a foundation of knowledge and the consequent self- constitutive power of the individual to produce knowledge. The mental deterioration of Geiser seems to further stress the finitude of man as a condition for knowledge. However, as Foucault poignantly makes clear, Man is a very recent invention and the individual is not self-constitutive of knowledge. Man thinks he is sovereign, all the while he is necessarily and inevitably bound by bodies of discourse that form the condition of his existence.
