Michel Foucault Quote

Picture Quote:

Homosexuality appeared as one of the forms of sexuality when it was transposed from the practice of sodomy into a kind of interior androgyny, a hermaphroditism of the soul. The sodomite had been a temporary aberration; the homosexual was now a species.  - Michel Foucault

Variant translation: "The job of an intellectual does not consist in molding the political will of others. It is a matter of performing analyses in his or her own fields, of interrogating anew the evidence and the postulates, of shaking up habits, ways of acting and thinking" - Remarks on Marx: conversations with Duccio Trombadori (Semiotext(e) , 1991), p. 11-12
