really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, school, summer-reading
Read from July 29 to August 05, 2011 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I found this one a bit slower going than the other volumes of lectures. I felt as though in this series Foucault introduced a large number of threads, many of which would only be resolved in subsequent years (and some of which, I think, would never be resolved at all). I don't know if reading them out of order helped or hurt; I did have a couple of "so THAT'S what he meant" moments, but also felt at times that what I was reading would have made little sense if I didn't know what was coming in the next couple of years.
