about this book

In this second volume of his history of sexuality, Foucault analyzes an array of ancient Greek texts on eroticism as he tries to answer basic questions about the West's perception of sexual experience as a moral issue, and why the other appetites of the body, such as hunger, and collective concerns, such as civic duty, were not subjected to the numberless rules and regulations and judgments that have defined, if not confined, sexual behavior.  Translated by Robert Hurley.
