Re: undergrad texts on foucault?

I cannot remember what brought about my interest in Foucault, but I believe
that Discipline and Punishment was what I first read of his followed by
History of Sexuality. Both texts peaked my interest and I found him quite
easily read. It is strictly my opinion that most Philosophy and Humanities
students should not have a problem understanding his works; as they should
be already familiar with his references and starting points of his research.
