His influential work on power, knowledge, and sexuality can be found on the reading lists for almost all courses in the social sciences, and academics have engaged so much with his work to such a degree that he is the most highly cited social scientist. Professor Sara Mills considers Paul Veyne’s recently republished book, Michel Foucault: His Thought, His Character, finding that the book is most illuminating is in the quotations and commentaries on Foucault’s own writing.
