Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine and define the so-called „history of the desiring man” that Foucault explains in a genealogical framework inspired by the Greek Antiquity, recognizing Aristotle`s ethics as one of its constitutive paradigms. The main challenge of this theoretical inquiry is to show that Aristotle`s perspective on the human desires is as actual as it used to be 2400 years ago, in a puzzle that evaluates the relationship of the individual with himself and his access to the truth, in the terms of Aphrodisia, Chresis, Enkrateia, Sophrosyne.
