In ‘Thinking dangerously’ he mentions his ‘quarrel with those linear descriptive models established in sociology, “regularities” and interpretations, lastly therefore also with my own scientific and political starting points’ (Eichberg, 1990b, p. , was shown by the history of the body to be the superstructure of a specific modern, western-industrial pattern of behaviour.

Configurational anthropology’ was a way of analysing the intersection of individual psychology and history, both of which were necessary for the interpretation of cultural forms (Benedict, 1989, pp. 232–3). This approach was above all Benedict’s response to claims for the biological bases of social phenomena, a claim that she emphatically rejected (Benedict, 1989, pp. 233–4). For Benedict, configurations or ‘patterns of culture’ should constitute the basic unit of sociological analysis: The significant sociological unit, from this point of view, therefore, is not the institution but the cultural configuration.
Unlike traditional (‘total’) history, which looks for continuities, Foucault seeks for epistemic breaks. He calls for a method that will obtain a plurality of histories, juxtaposed and independent from one another, but characterised by coincidences of dates and analogies of form and meaning. The problem is to determine what form of relation may be legitimately described between these different series (Foucault, 1972, p. 10). In ‘Thinking dangerously’ Eichberg notes the importance to him of the insight that ‘history makes leaps’: In the seventies the linearity of the historical process began to dissolve in the analysis of technology as well as the history of the body.
