The present work is the result of some observations about the relations between power and knowledge, the regularities and the possibilities of resistance. We decided, then, think and discuss the articulation between the concepts of Will of Truth and Will to Power, in order to understand the way moral establishes itself in the set of interactions. We demonstrates, like that, the way the society commands itself based on the current knowledge and, at the same time, creates resistences, transforming itself through the confrontation of forces, of the logical of power. Then, the theorical-methodological postulate with wich one works is the study of the discourse by the Foucault’s archaeogenealogy, bringing also, to the research, Nietzsche’s notions and reflections, in order to better illustrate the way society is constituted and your ways to see and say. The use of this theoretical contribution is justified because it is based on numerous unfoldings and contributions to the studies of the language in a historicist perspective. Thereby, it seeks to highlight issues pertinent to this field of study; What means Will to Power? What means Will of Truth? How those concepts relate on na enviroment were resistence and regularity coexist? What are the consequences that these concepts can have in what we propose to investigate? How do you set up a moral control mechanism? Those are questions that guide this work and that tend to worry for a more accurate theoretical analysis. Another aspect that is relevant to this approach is the understanding of the concept of device; according Courtine (2013), we should look to the device as a set of knowledges that can be crossed and make others appear, having a strategic function regulated by the power relations. Foucault and Nietzsche provide a basis for reading the concepts that are discussed, being complemented by your readers. This study is qualitative in that we do not look for exhaustive but representative data. Therefore, will be described, related and crossed statements that present in the contemporaneousness the quest to control morally the body, observing the resumption of the “already said” in function of legitimizing the discourses, leading to the discussion of why a person who goes hungry do not steal to eat as an example of the dynamics of morality. Finally, we can infer that the subject of discourse, although situated sociohistorically in capitalist societies, that reinforce the morality control, can resist which leads to the continuous transformation.
