Foucault, sexuality, liberalism: a commentary
David Glover pages -


Glover comments on Foucault’s discourse on sexuality and power and explores the significance of his own commentaries on previous writings, and the transitional and changeable state that his ideas suggest, particularly in his interview with Mort and Peters recorded in this volume. The article argues that in defining the genealogy of sexuality, Foucault necessarily found himself embroiled in liberalism and was forced to recognise origins of sexuality with which he was not always comfortable.
