    Leon Antonio Rocha (2011). Scientia sexualis versus ars erotica: Foucault, van Gulik, Needham. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 42 (3):328-343.
    This paper begins with a discussion of the scientia sexualis/ars erotica distinction, which Foucault first advances in History of Sexuality Vol. 1, and which has been employed by many scholars to do a variety of analytical work. Though Foucault has expressed his doubts regarding his conceptualization of the differences between Western and Eastern discourses of desire, he never entirely disowns the distinction. In fact, Foucault remains convinced that China must have an ars erotica. I will explore Foucault’s sources of authority. (...)

    Leon Antonio Rocha (2012). The Way of Sex: Joseph Needham and Jolan Chang. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 43 (3):611-626.
    This paper analyses the understandings of Daoist alchemy and Chinese sexuality of Joseph Needham and his friend and correspondent, the Chinese-Swedish writer Jolan Chang . Using the extensive correspondence between the two men, as well as Needham’s files on “inner alchemy” deposited at the Needham Research Institute, the paper begins with a partial reconstruction of a 1977 symposium, chaired by Needham, to promote Chang’s new book, The Tao of Love and Sex: The Ancient Chinese Way to Ecstasy.

  4. Robbie Duschinsky & Leon Antonio Rocha (eds.) (2012). Foucault, the Family and Politics. Palgrave Macmillan.
    Foucault, the Family and Politics presents a rich account of the politics and power relations that organize family and intimate life, advancing with and beyond Foucault's classic and more recently-published writings. The obligation to attend school, to go to work, to stay healthy, to follow the law – 'being a good son, a good husband, and so on' as Foucault wryly remarks – are frequently organized through the family. Including contributions from a range of well-known scholars and an essay by (...)
