Review: The Lives of Michel Foucault

User Review  - Kelly - Goodreads

It is an in-depth epic, of how Foucault came to exist which at least traces his intellectual as well as biological trees. In the case of biological trees it goes back a generation and offers a portrait of Michel's father. Quotes from letters his father wrote are quite insightful. Read full review
