Summary Each volume of this series of companions to major philosophers contains specially commissioned essays by an international team of scholars, together with a substantial bibliography, and will serve as a reference work for students and non-specialists. One aim of the series is to dispel the intimidation such readers often feel when faced with the work of a difficult and challenging thinker. New readers and nonspecialists will find this the most convenient, accessible guide to Foucault currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments on the interpretation of Foucault.
