Abstract

The recent pubulication of the long-awaited fourth volume of his History of Sexuality, Les Aveux de la chair, [1] raises questions as to why and how Foucault chose to reinvent his magnum opus as an investigation of ancient “techniques of the self” and their incorporation in early Christianity. In some ways, this shift parallels his reformulation of power relations in terms of governmentality, which was triggered by his encounter with neoliberalism during the same period.
