On the basis of a distinctive "material-cultural" approach to ethics, this book puts the case for radically changing the conventional terms of debate in respect to two intersecting issues: the problem of sexual harrassment, and the place of "citizenship" in socialist political theory and programmes. In so doing, this book of essays makes clear the implication of viewing both liberalism and its limits as aspects of "governmentality" (in Michel Foucault's sense) which cannot be reduced to the language of political philosophy and the debates which surround it. The study presents an anthropological rather than philosophical view of ethics and attempts to think through the ethical aspects of citizenship and participatory democracy. By the author of "Genealogies of Moral".
