CONFESSIONS OF THE FLESH, VOLUME 4: The History of Sexuality
What did God will in the matter of righteous sexual practice? Focault parses out the logic of various responses proffered by theologians over the centuries, culminating with Saint Augustine's discussion of the libido. Completed just before Foucault's death in 1984, this work posits that the origins of totalitarian self-surveillance began with the practice of confession.
