Nathan Harter published Foucault on Leadership: The Leader as Subject, an examination of French philosopher Michel Foucault's insights on leader development, most importantly that a leader must first become a subject – an autonomous agent who authors his or her own life by countering power with truth.
"Not many in leadership studies are aware that the most cited scholar in the social sciences spent the last three years of his life researching leader development, Harter says."
