The aim of this paper is to reflect on Rancière's method of equality and the way it implements a dissensual operation that removes objects, subjects, and discourses from their usual place in everyday and conventional interpretive frameworks, and reintroduces them into the field of inventions of different forms of language, manifestations, and argumentations. The inspiration Rancière found in Foucault's work helps us, first, to understand the place of fabulation in the writings of the ordinary man and the political and subversive aspects of its literarity. We emphasize that the method of equality questions us on the construction of new forms of academic writing that leave room for theorization, other than those of professional theorists, and on the status of other non-academic texts in the production of a poetics of knowledge.
