Foucault's later work is recognized increasingly as a key point for contemporary discussions in social theory, politics and philosophy. This volume brings together Foucauldian scholars who examine key issues such as: the question of Foucault and human rights; Foucault's relationship to ethical thought, power and freedom; Foucault's relationship to feminism; and comparisons of Foucault's work with Levinas and Rawls. DoeThe result is a book which casts Foucault's work in a new light and argues that the key to understanding Foucault is his political thought. Foucault emerges from these pages as a subtle and radical thinker, who went beyond commentary to directly challenge our orthodox, habitual practices and beliefs.
