Emergence of Sexuality by Arnold I. Davidson
Book DescriptionIn a book that moves between philosophy and history, and with lasting significance for both, Arnold Davidson elaborates a powerful new method for considering the history of concepts and the nature of scientific knowledge, a method he calls "historical epistemology." He applies this method to the history of sexuality, with important consequences for our understanding of desire, abnormality, and sexuality itself.

Books By Author Arnold I. Davidson
Lectures on the Will to Know, Paperback (November 2014)
In the first of his annual series of lectures at the College de France, Foucault develops a vigorous Nietzschean history of the will to know through an analysis of changing procedures of truth, legal forms, and class struggles in ancient Greece.
Late Derrida, Paperback (June 2007)
Points to the late work of Jacques Derrida, the writing by and about him in the period roughly from 1994 to 2004. This volume also deconstructs the whole question of lateness and the usefulness of periodization. It calls into question the "fact" of Derrida's turn to politics, law, and ethics and highlights continuities throughout his oeuvre.
Security, Territory, Population, Hardback (March 2007)
This book derives from Foucault's lectures at the College de France between January and April 1978, which can be seen as a radical turning point in his thought. Focusing on 'bio-power', he studies the foundations of this new technology of power over population and explores the technologies of security and the history of 'governmentality'.
Plotinus or the Simplicity of Vision, Paperback (May 1998)» View all books by Arnold I. Davidson
In this work, Hadot examines Plotinus' views on the self, existence, love, virtue, gentleness and solitude. He shows that Plotinus, like other philosophers of his day, believed that Plato and Aristotle had already articulated the essential truths, and so his purpose was to live philosophically.
