One of the greatest theorists of the twentieth century, Michel Foucault was born in Poitiers, France, in 1926.  He lectured in universities throughout the world; served as the director at the Institut Francais in Hamburg, Germany, and at the Institute de Philosophie at the Faculte des Lettres in the University of Clermont-Ferrand, France; and wrote frequently for French newspapers and reviews.  At the time of his tragically early death in 1984, he held a chair at France's most prestigious institution, the College de France.
