The Order of Things gives a new perspective on the schemes of things. I do not have much idea about your area of interest and reading history. I am not very sure whether it is an appropriate book to start with. May be you would like to begin first by reading one biography of Foucalt preferrably by Rainbow.
Just a follow up on your Foucault question: he does have his critics, most notable Noam Chomsky. You might want to check out The Chomsky-Foucault Debate: On Human Nature, to see where the two differ on ideas and why and how Chomsky is a critic of Foucault.
Thanks for the invitation to be a friend. Noted you have read Oracle Bones. Am working on finishing it. It is interesting. Want to read his book about teaching English in China. David Lodge--you are a fan of his! Tell me how you got so hooked on him. I have only read Changing Places. He is hilarious. What other of his books would you suggest for a second visit for me?
