In this Very Short Introduction Gary Gutting presents a wide-ranging but non-systematic exploration of some highlights of Foucault's life and thought. Beginning with a brief biography to set the social and political stage, he then tackles Foucault's thoughts on literature, in particular the avant-garde scene; his philosophical and historical work; his treatment of knowledge and /5(6).

Tony Schirato teaches and researches in the areas of cultural theory, media literacy, and sport and the media. He has co-authored books on the work of Michel Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu, and also on communication and cultural literacy, globalisation, Asian /5(2).

Publisher description: Michel Foucault was one of the most influential philosophical thinkers in the contemporary world, someone whose work has affected the teaching of half a dozen disciplines ranging from literary criticism to the history of criminology.

But of his many books, not one offers a satisfactory introduction to the entire complex body of his work. The Foucault Reader was commissioned precisely to But of his many books, not one offers a satisfactory introduction to the entire complex body of his work.

The Foucault Reader was commissioned precisely to serve that purpose/5. Gary Gutting is a professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.

Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism and Hermeneutics, by Dreyfus and Rabinow is great, but probably too much and too difficult for an introduction.
