Abstract:

Michael Foucault's intellectual journeys carried him across many different disciplines and often into uncharted lands. His astonishing discoveries and claims have been received with both unbridled enthusiasm and vehement dissent. This collection of essays is the first to bring together major criticisms of Foucault by other writers with their own visions. From the perspective of philosophy, the history of science, intellectual history, sociology, political science, and literary criticism, the distinguished contributors to this book discuss forthrightly and fairly the difficulties and dangers of Foucault's explorations. Whether they attack or defend him, his texts are closely examined and carefully interpreted.
