Yet over the past two decades, scholars have limited themselves to the study of Foucaults History of Sexuality, volume 1 paying lesser attention to his equally explosive History of Madness. In this earlier volume, Foucault recasts Western rationalism as a project that both produces and represses sexual deviants, calling out the complicity of modern science and the exclusionary nature of family morality.

By reclaiming these deft moves, Lynne Huffer teases out exciting new strands of Foucauldian thought. She then revisits the theorists ethical work in light of these discoveries, divining an ethics of eros that sees sexuality as a lived experience we are repeatedly called on to remember.

Throughout her study, Huffer weaves her own experiences together with Foucaults, sampling from unpublished interviews and other archived materials in order to intimately rework the problem of sexuality as a product of reason.
