He described it as composed of different papers about the self, about the role of reading and writing in constituting the self. . . and so on. The book Foucault envisioned was based on a faculty seminar on Technologies of the Self, originally presented at the University of Vermont in the fall of 1982. This volume is a partial record of that seminar. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
