In the process, Foucault garnered a reputation as one of the preeminent philosophers of the latter half of the twentieth century, and has served as a primary influence on successive generations of philosophers and cultural critics. With A Foucault Primer , Alec McHoul and Wendy Grace bring Foucault's work into focus for the uninitiated.
