"These lectures certainly indicate the continuities in Foucault's thought from the genealogical analyses of the 1970s, principally Discipline and Punish
and The History of Sexuality
, with his later studies associated with the care of the self. The publishers of this volume have provided a fluid and carefully annotated transcription of four texts that deepen our understanding of Foucault's idiosyncratic use of ancient ethics and what he thought we might learn from it."
