The Foucault Reader, Paperback / softback Book

The Foucault Reader Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series


'The most innovative and influential French thinker of the contemporary era' GuardianThis is the ideal introduction to one of the most significant and radical philosophers of the past century.

It includes detailed excerpts from all of Foucault's major works, including Discipline and Punish and The History of Sexuality, as well as many of his most revealing interviews, covering subjects from madness to desire, art to the nature of truth.

No other writer has made us think more about the structures of power and control in our society, both past and present. 'Scarcely any philosopher working on the history of philosophy or historian working on the history of institutions, social science or sexuality can avoid confronting the challenge of Foucault's books' Michael IgnatieffEdited by Paul Rabinow
