Political philosophy and sexuality Lorenzo Bernini
Political philosophy has always questioned the relationship between politics and sexuality. From 1900 onwards, three theoretical approaches exists that have developped different visions of that relationship, confronting the Freudian concepts of drive, desire, and identification: 1) Freudomarxist theories of sexual liberation, 2) social constructivist theories of sexuality and performative theories of gender, 3) antisocial queer theories.
Michel Foucault Lorenzo Bernini
One of the most influential philosopher of the Twentieth century, Foucault changed our understanding of power by introducing new political cathegories: 'disciplinary power', 'biopolitics', 'apparatus of sexuality'.
