Abstract
The aim of this study is to explore the history of accounting in Indonesia. In this case, a particular period of Indonesia history – the form and the existence of the accounting system in the Singosari Kingdom era – is the focus of the investigation. In the context of this study, accounting is not simply a method of calculation, but it is a discipline with complex phenomena in which it influences the individual, organizational, and social orders. In addition, the range of its aspects is from social, political and economic point of view.

This study is conducted by using a Foucauldian concept of the relation between the power and knowledge. The historical accounting researchers use the Foucauldian approach to show the accounting complexity of the power and knowledge structures within a society. This approach shows the accounting system as a valuable social science for disciplining the society and manifesting a comprehensive political power within the society. Then the major concern of the methodological analyses in the accounting research is to disclose how accounting becomes a disciplinary power and constitutive activity of knowledge.
