This comprehensive assessment of Michel Foucault's later work responds to the contemporary crisis in ethics, focusing on the way Foucault attempts to bring together the two seemingly-incompatible spheres of ethics and aesthetics through his reassessment of the Greek tradition. The book argues that Foucault's exploration of the history of sexuality and his re-interpretation of the critical philosophical tradition combine to frame a new approach both to the way we understand the tasks of philosophy and to the way we live our lives. It is aimed at those working at the intersection of contemporary debates in philosophy, ethics, politics and cultural studies.

About the Author:

Timothy O'Leary is Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Wollongong, Australia

Review:

"Timothy O'Leary's Foucault: The Art Of Ethics is an excellent, critical exploration of the contribution which Foucault's philosophy makes to contemporary discussion of morality. He appreciates Foucault's effort to return philosophy to being a way of life: It is an aesthetics of existence which is not a passive celebration of beauty but rather a rigorous ethical practice of more liberating ways of relating to one's self. O'Leary shows that Foucault is a significant thinker because, unlike so many other contemporary philosophers, he asked the most important of questions: How are we to live?" James Bernauer, Boston College
