Nomadic subjects embodiment and sexual difference in contemporary feminist theory by Rosi Braidotti( )
25 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the past fifteen years, Nomadic Subjects has guided the discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory. Exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, especially the concept of difference within European philosophy and political theory, Rosi Braidotti introduced avenues for thinking freely, if not positively, about difference, affirmation, and the nomadic subject. Braidotti's creative style vividly renders what she sees as a productive crisis of modernity. From a feminist perspective, she recasts embodiment, sexual difference, and complex concepts in relation to technol

The posthuman by Rosi Braidotti( Book )
26 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Posthuman offers both an introduction and major contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. Digital 'second life', genetically modified food, advanced prosthetics, robotics and reproductive technologies are familiar facets of our globally linked and technologically mediated societies. This has blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human. The Posthuman starts by exploring the extent to which a post-humanist move displaces the traditional humanistic unity of the subject. Rather than perceiving this situation as a loss of cognitive and moral self-mastery, Braidotti argues that the posthuman helps us make sense of our flexible and multiple identities. Braidotti then analyzes the escalating effects of post-anthropocentric thought, which encompass not only other species, but also the sustainability of our planet as a whole. Because contemporary market economies profit from the control and commodification of all that lives, they result in hybridization, erasing categorical distinctions between the human and other species, seeds, plants, animals and bacteria. These dislocations induced by globalized cultures and economies enable a critique of anthropocentrism, but how reliable are they as indicators of a sustainable future? The Posthuman concludes by considering the implications of these shifts for the institutional practice of the humanities. Braidotti outlines new forms of cosmopolitan neo-humanism that emerge from the spectrum of post-colonial and race studies, as well as gender analysis and environmentalism. The challenge of the posthuman condition consists in seizing the opportunities for new social bonding and community building, while pursuing sustainability and empowerment
Between monsters, goddesses, and cyborgs : feminist confrontations with science, medicine, and cyberspace by Nina Lykke( Book )
12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This important book shows that feminists cannot ignore either the emancipatory or the oppressive potential of technological progress. Bringing together 'natural' and 'social' scientists, the book paves the way for a specifically feminist strategy for science, technology, and health care. As such, it is vital reading for students, academics and activists in women's studies, cultural studies, the philosophy and social studies of science, health and the environment

Thinking differently : a reader in European women's studies ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Présentation sous : "This is the first book to ask whether there is a specifically European dimension to some of the major issues in Women's Studies. In doing so, it fills some of the gaps in our knowledge about women and enriches debates hitherto dominated by Anglo-American influences. Among the new areas of enquiry opened up are : Europe's experience of repeated warfare has impacted significantly on women. Hence contributions focus on women and militarism, and ethnic cleansing as an attack on the family. The abadingly problematic relationship between feminism and anti-semitism, and issues of migration and 'whiteness' in a context where racism reflects the colonial histories of particular European countries. The importance of passion, the emotions and psychoanalytical theory for the politics of certain European countries. The decline of the welfare state across Europe, the issue of the relationship between womens rights and human rights, and the rise of the phenomenon of the single woman. Reading feminism from a European perspective enables readers to reflect upon the ways changes in political, social and cultural positions and practices over the past century in Europe have impacted on feminist thinking and theorizing. The volume also raises important issues about the transfer of feminist concepts across cultures and languages. And to English-speaking audiences the volume will offer different viewpoints on some of the key debates
Transpositions : on nomadic ethics by Rosi Braidotti( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers an account of ethical and political subjectivity in contemporary culture. It makes a case for a non-unitary or nomadic conception of the subject, in opposition to the claims of ideologies such as conservatism, liberal individualism and techno-capitalism. Braidotti takes a stand against moral universalism, while offering a vigorous defence of nomadic ethics against the charges of relativism and nihilism. She calls for a new form of ethical accountability that takes "Life" as the subject, not the object, of enquiry. The nomadic ethical subject negotiates successfully the complex tension between the multiplicity of political forces on the one hand and the sustained commitment to emancipatory politics on the other"
After cosmopolitanism by Rosi Braidotti( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At a time when social and political reality seems to move away from the practice of cosmopolitanism, whilst being in serious need of a new international framework to regulate global interaction, what are the new definitions and practices of cosmopolitanism? Including contributions from leading figures across the humanities and social sciences, After Cosmopolitanism takes up this question as its central challenge. Its core argument is the idea that our globalised condition forms the heart of contemporary cosmopolitan claims, which do not refer to a transcendental ideal, but are rather immanent to the material conditions of global interdependence. But to what extent do emerging definitions of cosmopolitanism contribute to new representative democratic models of governance? The present volume argues that a radical transformation of cosmopolitanism is already ongoing and that more effort is needed to take stock of transformations which are both necessary and possible. To this end, After Cosmopolitanism calls for an understanding of cosmopolitanism that is more attentive to the material reality of our social and political situation and less focused on linguistic analyses of its metaphorical implications. It is the call for a cosmopolitanism that is also a cosmopolitics
Deleuze and law : forensic futures by Rosi Braidotti( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Deleuze and Law: Forensic Futures explores the relation between law and life and the advent of a politics of 'life'. How have recent events focused social, political and cultural attention on the living body and its maintenance and management? The central concept, through which the embodiment of the subject will be examined will be that of 'bio-power'. Articulated by Michel Foucault, but brought to attention more recently in the work of Giorgio Agamben, this concept recognises that the relation between life and law is both historical and necessary: the law must operate on bodies but can only do so by establishing a border between the body of the polity, and the mere life excepted from political concern. The contemporary advent of bio-politics occurs when the polity increasingly and invasively operates on this 'mere' life, and the body or organism - rather than the self - becomes the object of political management. The manner in which the body becomes the focus of contemporary power has led legal theory to explore new questions of the threshold between life and death and has led social theory to question the new extensions of the law and the polity into embodied life. The contributors explore the forensic shift in contemporary social theory and cultural sensibility from a number of perspectives."--Book cover
Nomadic theory : the portable Rosi Braidotti by Rosi Braidotti( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rosi Braidotti's nomadic theory outlines a sustainable modern subjectivity as one in flux, never opposed to a dominant hierarchy yet intrinsically other, always in the process of becoming, and perpetually engaged in dynamic power relations that are both creative and restrictive. Nomadic theory offers an original and powerful alternative for scholars working in cultural and social criticism and has, over the past decade, crept into continental philosophy, queer theory, and feminist, postcolonial, techno-science, media and race studies, as well as architecture, history and anthropology. Th
Revisiting normativity with Deleuze ( )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume assembles some of the most distinguished scholars in the field of Deleuze studies in order to provide both an accessible introduction to key concepts in Deleuze's thought and to test them in view of the issue of normativity. This includes not only the law, but also the question of norms and values in the broader ethical, political and methodological sense. The volume argues that Deleuze's philosophy rejects the unitary vision of the subject as a self-regulating rationalist entity and replaces it with a process-oriented relational vision of the subject. But what can we do exactly with this alternative nomadic vision? What modes of normativity are available outside the parameters of liberal, self-reflexive individualism on the one hand and the communitarian model on the other? This interdisciplinary volume explores these issues in three directions that mirror Deleuze and Guattari's defense of the parallelism between philosophy, science, and the arts. The volume therefore covers socio-political and legal theory; the epistemological critique of scientific discourse and the cultural, artistic and aesthetic interventions emerging from Deleuze's philosophy
In spite of Plato : a feminist rewriting of ancient philosophy by Adriana Cavarero( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This pathbreaking work pursues two interwoven themes. Firstly, it engages in a deconstruction of Ancient philosophers' texts - mainly from Plato, but also from Homer and Parmenides - in order to free four Greek female figures from the patriarchal discourse which for centuries had imprisoned them in a particular role. Secondly, it attempts to construct a symbolic female order, reinterpreting these figures from a new perspective. Building on the theory of sexual difference, Cavarero shows that death is the central category on which the whole edifice of traditional philosophy is based. By contrast, the category of birth provides the thread with which new concepts of feminist criticism can be woven together to establish a fresh way of thinking. Cavarero develops a philosophical narrative which, by re-interpreting each of the four figures of Ancient thought, uncovers several images of the female desire for self-representation. Plato himself had not foreseen that one day female subjectivity would assert its autonomy, plundering and throwing into confusion the patriarchal text in order to tell another story."--Page 4 of cover

"A video essay on the new dream screen of the Internet and how it impacts on the global circulation of women's bodies from the third world to the first world. Although under-age Philippine 'pen pals' and post-Soviet mail-order brides have been part of the transnational exchange of sex in the post-colonial and post-Cold War marketplace of desire before the digital age, the Internet has accelerated these transactions."--Http://
