The Culture of Confession from Augustine to Foucault

A Genealogy of the 'Confessing Animal'

The Culture of Confession from Augustine to Foucault
Add to cart
US$ 54.95

Drawing on the work of Foucault and Western confessional writings, this book challenges the transhistorical and commonsense views of confession as an innate impulse resulting in the psychological liberation of the confessing subject. Instead, confessional desire is argued to be contingent and constraining, and alternatives to confessional subjectivity are explored.
