Michel Foucault’s work has profoundly affected
the teaching of such diverse disciplines as literary
criticism, criminology, and gender studies. Arguing
that definitions of abnormal behavior are culturally
constructed, Foucault explored the unfair division
between those who meet and those who deviate
from social norms. Foucault’s deeply visual sense
of scenes such as ritual public executions lends
itself well to Moshe Süsser’s dramatic illustrations.
