Critical Review 9 (3):349-370 (1995)
|Abstract||In the last years of his life, Michel Foucault sought to address ?ethical? questions, having to do with the self's relation to itself, by trying to locate in the Roman Stoics and other philosophers of antiquity what he called ?an aesthetics of existence.? By this Foucault meant ?the idea of a self which has to be created as a work of art.? This article aims at a critical dialogue with the texts that compose this last phase of Foucault's thought, probing the moral and political adequacy of Foucault's Nietzschean vision of the self's aesthetic self?creation.|
