310pp. Notes, Index. Michel Foucault is perhaps and certainly among the most perplexing and certainly among the most  influential of twentieth century thinkers Although trained in philosophy, he situated his writings almost entirely in the domain of history--fields he sought to combine and, in every sense, to "dediscipline". Yet Foucault's readers have consistenly singled out his philosophy for intensive discussion. This volume is the first to address his influence on, and the potential of his work for, the understanding and the writing of history.
