Michel Foucaultby David R. Shumway
David Shumway has provided, for the nonspecialist, a systematic analysis of the works of Foucault that is both thorough and accessible. Drawing on examples from a wide range of disciplines and materials, he illustrates those things in Foucault's work that tend to be stumbling blocks, yet avoids oversimplification. Shumway connects Foucault's various conceptual and linguistic techniques to the basic critical strategies and purpose of his philosophy. The book is organized to reflect both the evolution of Foucault's thought and the continuity in his philosophical and ethical concerns.
