Video: Penelope Deutscher and Jana Sawicki in Conversation with Lynne Huffer on Foucault’s Strange Eros


In a provocative take on eros as a verb—as erosion of the thinking subject bound by grids of intelligibility that define her identity—Huffer offers the splendid final installment of her Foucault trilogy. Forcefully written with a capacious imagination, this book exemplifies the enviable rewards of a sustained in-depth engagement with Foucault as an ethopoietic thinker.
