New editions appear every few days."

In the PMTH Toolbox, she has provided a dictionary/glossay of terms, short biographical descriptions, and a host of other resources. Shawver is acknowledged as one of the most adept and clear interpreters of Wittgenstein currently writing and brings similar clarity to other postmodern writers (Lyotard, Foucault, etc.).
- MFTC-L Dictionary for the Study of Michel Foucault [online]Lois Shawver has assembled a short set of definitions of specialized Foucaultian terms to assist an online discussion of his work on the MFTC-L listserv.
