About this book


On the basis of a distinctive 'material-cultural' approach to ethics Questions of Conduct puts the case for radically changing the conventional terms of debate on the problem of sexual harassment, and the place of 'citizenship' in socialist political theory and programmes. In so doing this book makes clear the implications of viewing both liberalism and its limits as aspects of 'governmentality' (in Michel Foucault's sense) which cannot be reduced to the language of political philosophy and the debates which surround it.
