(p.142) Epilogue
Becoming a New Self

Moshe Sluhovsky

University of Chicago Press

The practices discussed in the book served not merely to diffuse spiritual practices among believers. They contributed to creating a new sense of self, a self that is constantly under its own surveillance, constantly examining itself and producing itself as a subject. As such, they document and affirm Michel Foucault's discussion, following other philosophers of modern subjecthood, of the uniqueness of modern subjectivization as a process that creates selves while submitting them to authority.

Keywords:   Michel Foucault, introspection, subjechood, subjugation, subjectivization
