"It is possible to accept [Foucault's] argument while doubting that [he] will manage to prove it in the proposed six volumes, much less in this first one...The trouble is that a method that worked well enough in earlier books is here imposed on a subject altogether more elusive, a subject in which every reader is a kind of expert. Having been deprived not too long ago of the mysteries of God and the soul, we are not anxious to be deprived of the mystery of sex. This is not the fault of Foucault's book. It is, instead, the result of the extraordinary mystifications that surround its subject and envelop even its most sympathetic readers."Foucault, Michel is the author of 'History of Sexuality An Introduction', published 1990 under ISBN 9780679724698 and ISBN 0679724699.
