Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel
:The body is the inscribed surface of events (traced by language and dissolved by ideas), the locus of a dissociated self (adopting the illusion of substantial unity), and a volume in disintegration. Genealogy, as an analysis of descent, is thus situated within the articulation of the body and history. Its task is to expose a body totally imprinted by history and the process of history's destruction of the body.

Michel Foucault, "Nietzsche, Genealogy, History" (1971)
