Convulsing Bodies

17th March 2015 | Alice Taylor

Love the cover of this book Convulsing Bodies by Mark D. Jordan; design by Anne Jordan (Stanford University Press / October 2014).

‘Foucault was famously interested in Christianity as both the rival to ancient ethics and the parent of modern discipline and was always alert to the hypocrisy and the violence in churches. Yet many readers have ignored how central religion is to his thought, particularly with regard to human bodies and how they are shaped.’ Stanford University Press
