Michel Foucault, the first public intellectual in France to die of AIDS, was arguably the most innovative and influential thinker of the Sexual Revolution.  As the left-leaning The Guardian put it, Foucault’s ‘work explored the ways in which modern societies imposed various forms of intellectual and physical control on their citizens, ranging from dominant norms and coercive state controls to medical and sexual practices.’ In his 1975 book Discipline and Punish, Foucault applied Jeremy Bentham’s idea of a ‘panopticon’ (an... Read more

For many people, J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings is their favourite book.  It was voted the greatest book of the twentieth century by the British public.  Since then, it also became an Academy award winning film trilogy. Tolkien’s works of fantasy are famously intricate, with a whole world of languages and creatures and cultures and history.  Some of his legendarium makes it into the story proper, but much of the rich complexity must be gleaned from Tolkien’s other tales... Read more
