Impersonal friends: Foucault, Guibert and an ethics of discomfort
Tom Roach, pages -

Abstract

This article analyses the letter that Michel Foucault wrote for author Hervé Guibert, just a few months before Foucault died. It incorporates Foucault’s definition of pleasure, as well as his description of a man that he watched every day. Tom Roach also explores Foucault’s writings in ‘The End of the Monarchy of Sex’.
