4. Ethical Subjects
Sophie Fuggle is a lecturer in the Centre for Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.
"Perhaps it will be a focus on power, in the end, which will burn through clichéd distinctions between the secular and the religious, even as it also opens new modes of enacting political solidarity. Sophie Fuggle leads the way to a new critical theory in keeping with a new politics, and she does so by rewiring the figure of Paul for a brilliant comparative reflection on Foucault's technologies of the self. Short-circuiting our usual assumptions about the difference between the ancient and contemporary figures in question, neither Paul nor Foucault nor their interpreters will be able to remain the same." -
