This isn't supposed to apply to Montag is it? Montag's reading of Foucault
is generous and critical, doesn't repudiate Foucault as a relativist, and
his reading of Althusser is considerable more nuanced. His recent book on
Althusser made me rethink a number of things about him, not least the light
the posthumous publications shed on the books published in his life. It's
highly recommended.
