Although invisible before his promised return, the Twelfth Imam is neither radically nor fatally absent.

Afary and Anderson have provided an immense service by translating the relevant writings by Foucault and, more significantly, his critics. With respect to this "political will," however, there are also two questions that concern me even more deeply. Shorter than its predecessor, it focused on the changes that the medical establishment underwent in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The work alludes to the work of French poet and playwright Antonin Artaudwho exerted a strong influence over Foucault's thought at the time.
