Michel Foucaultís work has profoundly affected the teaching of such diverse disciplines as literary criticism, criminology, and gender studies. Arguing that definitions of abnormal behavior are culturally constructed, Foucault explored the unfair division between those who meet and those who deviate from social norms. Foucaultís deeply visual sense of scenes such as ritual public executions, lends itself well to Moshe SŁsserís dramatic illustrations.
