Product Description

Hugely influential, Michel Foucault’s work has not only impacted a diverse range of disciplines—from history and sociology to fine arts, feminism, and gay and lesbian studies—but has also profoundly shaped Western culture as a street level.

Yet until now there has been no overarching systematic approach to his work from a Reformed perspective—let alone that is fair and accessible as Watkin’s. After walking us through key elements of Foucault’s thought, Watkin both critiques and answers Foucault through the Bible’s teaching on history, power, and identity. His insights are necessary reading for anyone who wants to engage thoughtfully with the ideas of our culture.

Publisher's Description

Michel Foucault is, by some measures, the single most cited author across the arts and humanities today. His work continues to exert a deep and broad influence in disciplines as diverse as history, literary studies, sociology, philosophy, fine art, feminism, gay and lesbian studies, and the history of science. Despite this, until now there has been no overarching systematic approach to his work from a Reformed perspective—let alone one that is accessible as Watkins’. Peter J. Leithart writes, “Chris Watkin has written a remarkable book—remarkable for its brevity, concision, accuracy, insight. . . . Best of all for a Christian reader, Watkin assesses Foucault’s strengths and flaws in the light of Scripture.” William Edgar adds, “In the capable hands of Chris Watkin, Foucault does emerge as a helpful guide to the way we use and abuse power, yet one who in the end is deeply flawed. . . . An absolute treasure of a book.”
