Michel Foucault: 35 years later his death, it is time to make an assessment. What is still effective and what is timeworn in his work? In which way, in which directions, has he influenced the research? With which conceptual tools did he provide researchers?  Why is he continuing provoking devotion from one hand and hostility from the other? The next issue of "Suite française" aims to make a point beyond his celebration or his rejection, to discuss and study Foucault, to tackle him on his own battlefield: his subjects of research, his thesis, his interpretations.
