Foucault and Religion is the first major study of Michel Foucault
in relation and response to Religion. Jeremy Carrette offers us a
challenging new look at Foucault's work and addresses a religious
dimension that has previously been neglected. We see that prior to
Foucault's infamous unpublished volume in the 'History of
Sexuality', on the theme of Christianity, there is a complex
religious sub-text which anticipates this final unseen work. Jeremy
Carrette argues that Foucault offers a twofold critique of
Christianity by bringing the body and sexuality into religious
practice and exploring a political spirituality of the self. He
shows us that Foucault's creation of a body theology through the
death of God, reveals how religious beliefs reflect the sexual
body, questions the notion of a mystical archaeology and exposes
the political technology of confession. Anyone interested in
understanding Foucault's thought in a new light will find this book
a truly fascinating read.
