2. The following are some of the best expository, comparative, and critical studies on Foucault now available in English: Mark Cousins and Athar Hussain, Michel Foucault (New York: St. Martin's Press, 1984); Barry Smart, Michel Foucault (London: Tavistock Publications, 1985); Alan Sheridan, The Will to Truth (London: Tavistock Publications, 1980). Smart's earlier work, Foucault, Marxism, and Critique (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1983) in many ways parallels the structure and conclusions of the book by Poster discussed here. All of the above contain useful bibliographies of Foucault's writings and selected secondary material. Perhaps the best general critical discussion (with an afterword and interview by Foucault) is: Dreyfus and Rabinow, Michel Foucault: Beyond Structuralism and Hermeneutics (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1982).
3. Michel Foucault, Language, Counter-Memory, Practice, ed. Donald Bouchard (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1977), p. 231; Power/Knowledge, ed. Colin Gordon (New York: Pantheon Books, 1980), p. 145.
4. Richard Rorty, The Consequences of Pragmatism (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1982), p. 207. Rorty further concludes: "Although Foucault and Dewey are trying to do the same thing, Dewey seems to me to have done it better, simply because his vocabulary allows room for unjustifiable hope, and an ungroundable but vital sense of human solidarity" (p. 208).
