Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was one of the most important intellectual figures of the twentieth century. He is known for many significant writings, including The Archaeology of Knowledge (1969) and the first volume of The History of Sexuality (1976). Jeremy R. Carrette is Lecturer in Religious Studies at the University of Stirling.


"The reading of [this text] produces a nuanced frame for appreciating Foucault anew, directs readers to key moments and texts, and provides thorough referencing to the critiques made regarding Foucault's gender-blind and race-blind studies." -- Mary Keller, Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"It is valuable in that it brings together for the first time many previously inaccessible pieces by Foucault that will be of interest and use not only to students of theology, but also to students and scholars who have interest in social change, the self, and the society at large." -- Muhammad Ayaz Naseem, Foucault Studies
