This paper deals critically with the posthumous interpretation of Foucault's work by Gilles Deleuze. The inquiry begins with Deleuze's claim that the late Foucault was a topologist like Andrei Bely in his modernist novel Petersburg. In order to illuminate this Deleuzian perspective, the author discusses the concepts of dispositif and chronotope. By analyzing a key scene from Petersburg, the paper concludes that Deleuze's notion of topology is closer to his own philosophical system than to Foucault's historical research.
