A brilliant display of fireworks, attacking the widespread and banal notion that “in the beginning” sexual activity was guilt-free and delicious, being repressed and blighted only by the gloom of Victorianism’ Spectator We talk about sex more and more, but are we more liberated? The first part of Michel Foucault’s landmark account of our evolving attitudes in the west shows how the nineteenth century, far from suppressing sexuality, led to an explosion of discussion about sex as a separate sphere of life for study and examination. As a result, he argues, we are making a science of sex which is devoted to the analysis of desire rather than the increase of pleasure. ‘A wealth of insights, original conceptualizations and provocative ideas’ The Times Literary Supplement
