This seems to be a common opinion among Foucault fans; it reminds me of the
reaction in Charlottesville - the physical home of this list, and as its
very address suggests, the epicenter of Jefferson worship (the "village"
part comes from Jefferson's reference to the university he founded as an
"academical village") - when Fawn Brodie's bio of the slaveholder was
published, and even of the reaction of the Catholic church to Hitchens'
book on Mother Teresa.
Just what's wrong with Miller?
