About the Author

Paul Veyne is Honorary Professor at the College de France.


"Paul Veyne's quirky and involving book is an idiosyncratic andpersonal tribute, which is obviously, and movingly, deeplyfelt." The Philosophers' Magazine "Foucault is well- known as one of the most influential thinkersof the twentieth century. Writing from his profound knowledge ofthe man, Paul Veyne here vividly brings out his character andpersonality." Geoffrey Lloyd, University of Cambridge "It is fascinating to follow Paul Veyne s engagement withFoucault: he was extremely close to Foucault, as the celebratedhistory of sexuality developed as a project, and this essay, whichmixes reminiscences with argument and reflection, captures a realflavour of the intellectual excitement of those times." Simon Goldhill, University of Cambridge
