The Sexuality of Philosophy. Foucault: life and work.

Michel Foucault was not only one of the most famous philosophers of the last century but also an iconic member of the French gay community of the 20th century. Moreover, one of his most famous works, "The History of Sexuality", is an ambitious historiological, sociological and philosophical work that celebrates sexual diversity and condemns the oppression of LGBT+ groups throughout history. Thus, and as part of the LGBT+ History Month, the KCL Philosophy Society is pleased to host an event that aims to celebrate his memory and legacy. We will first screen the documentary "Foucault against himself", that focuses on Foucault's life and work, with a special emphasis on his view on sexuality.
