Practices of the Self and Spiritual Practices : Michel Foucault and the Eastern Christian Discourse Paperback / softback

Edited by Kristina Stoeckl

Description

In this book Sergey Horujy undertakes a novel comparative analysis of Foucault's theory of practices of the self and the Eastern Orthodox ascetical tradition of Hesychasm, revealing deep affinities between these two radical "subject-less" approaches to anthropology.

In facilitating this unusual dialogue, he offers both an original treatment of ascetical and mystical practices and an up-to-date interpretation of Foucault that goes against the grain of mainstream scholarship.
