Foucault for Beginners

by Lydia Alix Fillingham

Book review

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 divisions between those who meet and those who deviate from social norms.In Foucault For Beginners, the reader will discover Foucault’s deeply visual sense of scenes such as ritual public executions.
