Starting with Foucault: An Introduction to Genealogy

Synopsis

In this clear, straightforward introduction to Foucault's thought, Prado focuses on Discipline and Punish and the first volume of The History of Sexuality, in which Foucault most clearly comes to grips with the historicization of truth and knowledge and the formation of subjectivity. This introduction is especially suited for readers with a background in Anglo-American or "analytic" philosophy.
