Though I was a bit shocked to see this, I find it encouraging that SVS is moving up the intellectual ladder: http://www.svspress.com/index.php?cPath=43_78

Does anyone know if they are using this as a text within the classroom or are they just selling it out of the bookstore?

What do you mean by that--"moving up the intellectual ladder"?

Wouldn't most people have read this sort of thing during undergrad, or even High School?

(By the way, what's so revolutionary about linking Foucault's cultural history of sexuality to knowledge and power!? Does he ever do otherwise?)

Well, I never heard of the guy before Seminary, although of course his ideas were taught in my university without necessarily being attributed to him and I recognized them reading up on him.

I didn't mean anything negative, I'm just saying that it is encouraging to see St. Vlads using authors that many good grad schools (Princeton, here at UW, etc.) use in a variety of departments.

And what I found shocking is that an Orthodox Seminary was using material written by man like Foucault who had a very "interesting" lifestyle. I do not have a problem with it, I find the man brilliant, but I bet that some people (including a few people I know) would go topsy turvy if they knew.

Pensateomnia, you were taught about Foucault in High School?!! Most people I know have no clue who he is. UW includes his texts as mandatory reading material in the grad school, but alas, we undergrads have to settle with Marx (boo!).
