re: What book has had the greatest influence on you politically and philosophically?

I like Order of Things (though I didn't finish it and don't agree with a lot of it), but never really got into Derrida.

Foucault is more accessible stylistically even if the concepts are certainly complex.

Derrida I wouldn't recommend the actual books themselves to anyone who's also not used to the condensed, elliptical philosophical writings of such as Hegel, Heidegger, Nietzsche etc. for much the same reason as I would personally struggle to get into some styles of scientific writing.
