This chapter examines philosopher Michel Foucault's views on sexuality and the history of homosexuality in France. It argues that analyzing simultaneously Foucault's sexual life as a gay French male and his work on sexuality will illuminate both the work and the life in important ways. It suggests that Foucault's scholarly hermeneutic made it possible for him to be both the object and the subject of his investigations of the history of homosexuality.

Keywords:   Michel Foucault, sexuality, homosexuality, France, gay man, sexual life
