A Franco-American professor accused intellectual collaborator Michel Foucault of being a “pedophile rapist”, a report in The Sunday Times said. In an interview, Guy Sorman stated that he discovered Fukault’s behavior after meeting the late philosopher in Tunisia, where he lived in 1969.

“He was eight, nine, ten years old. He was throwing money at them and saying ‘Let’s meet at 10 o’clock at night.’ He made love with the boys at the headstone there. The issue of consent was also not raised.
“Sormann argued that Foucault managed to flee insecurity because of the racial element of his occupation.” Foucault would not have dared to do so in France … There is a colonial dimension there. White imperialism, ”said Surman.
In the interview, Sorman stated that he had “regrets”, having not reported this “extremely ugly moral” behavior to the police. He said the press was aware of Foucault’s conduct, but was reluctant to publish the stories because of his status as a “philosopher king” of France, as well as a “god”. (…)
