Mad for Foucault - Rethinking the Foundations of Queer Theory

Michel Foucault was the first to embed the roots of human sexuality in discipline and biopolitics, therefore revolutionizing our conception of sex and its relationship to society, economics, and culture. Yet over the past two decades, scholars have limited themselves to the study of Foucault`s History of Sexuality, volume 1 paying lesser attention to his equally explosive History of Madness. In this earlier volume, Foucault recasts Western rationalism as a project that both produces and represses sexual deviants, calling out the complicity of modern science and the exclusionary nature of family morality. By reclaiming these deft moves, Lynne Huffer teases out exciting new strands of Foucauldian thought. She then revisits the theorist`s ethical work in light of these discoveries, divining an ethics of eros that sees sexuality as a lived experience we are repeatedly called on to remember. Throughout her study, Huffer weaves her own experiences together with Foucault`s, sampling from unpublished interviews and other archived materials in order to intimately rework the problem of sexuality as a product of reason.

"What if, Huffer asks, the center of gravity of one of the most powerful strands of queer theory were relocated from Foucault`s History of Sexuality, volume 1, to his earlier, massive History of Madness? With great generosity of mind and spirit, Huffer, a leading theorist at some of the most productive intersections between queer and feminist theory, performs this needful Archimedean task." — (Michael Moon)
"From the picture on its cover to the pages of her book, Lynne Huffer`s study offers us a Foucault many will scarcely recognize. Arguing that virtually from the start of his career Foucault lays new grounds for queer theory, Huffer combines scrupulous scholarship, attentive close reading, and passionate argument with personal meditations to suggest why the early Foucault matters now." — (Jonathan Goldberg)
"Mad for Foucault is one of the most exciting books I have read in a while. It represents an original, provocative, and ambitious effort to rethink the foundations of queer theory. Every chapter is replete with fascinating points and provocative assertions." — (Jana Sawicki)
