bookshelves: foucault, theeeeeeory
Read in August, 2009

After the almost breezy style of "Discipline and Punish" and "Madness and Civilization" as well as the other fragments of Foucault I'd read, this was pretty challenging. It's an interesting approach he develops, and because it frames his more specific researches (into the asylum, the prison, etc.), you really get an idea of his larger project. Furthermore, there's plenty of evidence in here that Foucault is not a nihilist, but rather has a method and a praxis. Useful weaponry against d-bag conservatives.
