This volume presents a systematic and comprehensive overview of Foucault's major themes and texts, from his early work on madness through his history of sexuality, and relates his work to significant contemporary movements such as critical theory and feminism. The volume includes the first English translation of George Canguilhem's much cited essay on The Order of Things, and a pseudonymous dictionary entry on Foucault that was probably written by Foucault himself shortly before his death.
