really liked it

i read this book years ago in an effort to understand Foucault. I haven't been interested in Foucault for some time, but recently I agreed to give a presentation about him and returned to this book . It is not a biography or a synopsis. It is a rigorous attempt to come to terms with Foucault's intellectual trajectory and his often confusing way of presenting his ideas. For someone like myself who is only superficially familiar with 'continental philosophy' this book is very helpful for providing clear descriptions of the intellectual background to Foucault's work.
