Foucault for Beginners (For Beginners)

by

Foucault for Beginners (For Beginners) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michel Foucault's work has profoundly affected the teaching of such diverse disciplines as literary criticism, criminology, and gender studies. Arguing that definitions of abnormal behavior are culturally constructed, Foucault explored the unfair division between those who meet and those who deviate from social norms. Foucault's deeply visual sense of scenes such as ritual public executions, lends itself well to Moshe Süsser's dramatic illustrations.

About the Author

Lydia Alix Fillingham has taught literary theory, Victorian literature, and writing, at Stanford University, University of Colorado, and Harvard University.  She is currently an independent author, and also an attorney.  She lives with her husband and two cats in Concord, Massachusetts.
