Confessions of the Flesh - Fourth volume of Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality published in English
"He spoke of his work as a ‘history of the present’, an examination of how we got to where we are, how what is currently taken for granted was made possible. With the publication of his lecture courses, and now this book, we are continually finding new work to explore and think with him.” The publication today of the first English translation of Confessions of the Flesh has been welcomed by Professor Stuart Elden, one of the leading experts on French philosopher Michel Foucault’s work.
