C. G. Prado is professor of philosophy at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. He is the author of eight books, the most recent of which are Descartes and Foucault: A Contrastive Introduction, and The Last Choice: Preemptive Suicide in Advanced Age (Second Edition).
"Prado's intention to walk the middle ground between analytical and continental thought, as far as Foucault's contribution to philosophy is concerned, should be encouraged and appreciated." International Studies in Philosophy
