Whose Sexual Revolution?
Introduces the literary roots and socio-political context of radical libertinism in eighteenth-century France with an emphasis on satire, philosophical skepticism, and the disenfranchisement of the aristocracy under absolutism. Puts forward the overrarching claim that such libertinism took on a systematic and autonomous form at this time, differentiating itself from moral philosophy in particular and treating any restraints on pleasure as illegitimate.
