Product Description


The reading of [this text] produces a nuanced frame for appreciating Foucault anew, directs readers to key moments and texts, and provides thorough referencing to the critiques made regarding Foucault's gender-blind and race-blind studies..
–Mary Keller, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

It is valuable in that it brings together for the first time many previously inaccessible pieces by Foucault that will be of interest and use not only to students of theology, but also to students and scholars who have interest in social change, the self, and the society at large..
–Muhammad Ayaz Naseem, Foucault Studies

Carrette is Lecturer in Religious Studies at the University of Stirling.

First Sentence
There is certainly, in any culture, a coherent series of gestures of separation; among these, prohibition of incest, the marking out of madness and perhaps certain religious exclusions are only particular cases. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag March 5 2000
By "tksc" - Published on
As the English speaking world is lacking the definitive collection of Foucault's numerous occasional writings for journals, newspapers and forwards to books, any addition to the ever-expanding oeuvre of translations is a plus.
Most of the selections here have been published previously in other collections. However, this collection includes some interesting pieces that were previously hard to find. My favorite may be "Who are you, Professor Foucault?" an interview conducted shortly after Les Mots and les choses, in which Foucault dismisses the criticism of anti-humanism by referring to humans as mere functioning species. Classic. Also, the essay, "Is It Useless to Revolt?" is a stunning and conflicting piece of political writing. Beautifully written (and translated). The editor includes a selection of Foucault's final lectures which outlines the intended fourth volume to the History of Sexuality: The Confessions of the Flesh.
In all, these essays provide an interesting contrast between Foucault's aesthetic views and views on spirituality and religion. Indeed, the mystical side of Foucault are highlighted in his essays on Klossowski and modern French fiction when read alongside his writings on the Church and mystical experiences.
Oh, and this collection includes a marvellous brief memoir by James Bernauer. Good stuff...

Not everyone knows that Foucault analyzed religion with his philosophical mind and kept a regular correspondence with a Jesuit scholar and priest. These are fascinating insights and good to know when writing papers and essays on religion.
