- DescriptionMichel Foucault is w regarded as one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. He is kwn for his sensibility of critique and his commitment to movements for social change. His analysis of the ways our tions of truth, meaning, kwledge and reason are shaped by historical forces continues to influence thinkers around the world. Understanding Foucault offers a comprehensive introduction to Foucault's work. The authors examine Foucault's thinking in the context of the philosophies he engaged with during his career, and the events he participated in, including the student protests of 1968. A unique feature of the book is its consideration of recently published lectures and mir works, and the authors show how these illuminate and extend our understanding of Foucault's major books. Understanding Foucault provides an accessible entree to the world of this extraordinary and challenging philosopher.
