"Few philosophers have had as significant an impact on contemporary thought as Michel Foucault. His complete uncollected writings, under the title "Dits et ecrits," were published in French in 1994 and in a three volume series from The New Press that brought the most important of these works--courses, articles, and interviews, many of them translated into English for the first time--to American readers. Now, Paul Rabinow and Nikolas Rose have collected the best pieces from the three-volume set into a one-volume anthology. "The Essential Foucault," which features a new and provocative introduction by Rabinow and Rose, is certain to become the standard text for all those interested in a comprehensive overview of Foucault's thought." —Publisher. ¶  CONTENTS: Introduction: Foucault today / Paul Rabinow and Nikolas Rose Foucault / [Maurice Florence] Life: experience and science Polemics, politics, and problematizations: an interview with Michel Foucault The ethics of the concern of the self as a practice of freedom What is enlightenment?
