Helpful. Authorial agenda is unreasonably pro-Sartre and pro-Foucault, and thus gives an unfair account of the superior thinker Merleau-Ponty's project(in the former case)and shafts the more rich and vital (heh heh) work of Deleuze(in the latter), dwelling on sycophantic explications of more fashionable and less nuanced ideas formulated by their more famous contemporaries. Otherwise a good history-of-ideas that doesn't feel like a patchwork.
