- DescriptionA clear and critical account of Foucault's political thought: what he said, how it's been used and its influence today This book surveys Michel Foucault's thought in the context of his life and times, drawing on the latest primary and secondary materials to explain the political implications of each phase of his work and the relationships between each phase. It also illustrates how his thought has been used in the political sphere and examines the importance of his work for politics today. One of the most prominent theorists in the contemporary humanities and social sciences, Foucault is kwn as a radical thinker who disturbs our understanding of society. He also presented a moving target, continually changing his concerns and his apparent position. So, until w, comparatively little attention has been given to his politics.
