The History of Sexuality: 4: Confessions of the Flesh (Hardback)

£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Foucault's History of Sexuality changed the way we think about power, selfhood and sexuality. In this fourth and final volume, he turns his attention to early Christianity, exploring how ancient ideas of pleasure were modified into the Christian notion of the 'flesh' - a transformation that would define the Western experience of sexuality.



Essentially completed at Foucault's death, the manuscript of this volume was locked away in a Paris bank vault for nearly thirty years. Now for the first time, the work is available to English-language readers as the author originally conceived it.

Robert Hurley is a leading French translator, specializing in the work of French philosophers and critical theorists. His English translations of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Georges Bataille are considering definitive. Michel Foucalt (1926-84) was one of the leading intellectuals of the twentieth century and the most prominent thinker in post-war France. Foucault's work influenced disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, philosophy, sociology and literary criticism.
