Product description

Review

Rosi Braidotti's Nomadic Subjects has made a substantial contribution to the fields of continental philosophy and feminist theory, and her conceptual analysis is more relevant now than ever. Written in Braidotti's inimitable style, this second edition lays out the conceptual foundations that her later writing puts to work.--Amy Allen, Dartmouth College

This book exceeds the hyperboles one wants to draw upon to describe great books. By its title alone, Braidotti's Nomadic Subjects promises to avoid the cliches, oppositions and warring political divides that have come to mark theory. At once critical of the glibness of the present, yet avoiding easy nostalgia or utopianism while remaining active Braidotti's work signals a new style adequate for twenty-first century horizons. Hers is a nomadic theory, refusing to be anchored in any camp or tradition, and yet also a remarkable affirmation of the subject, even if that subject bears none of the usual (and now rather tiresome) attributes of self-possession, self-reflection and self-consciousness. For anyone who feels somewhat jaded or beleaguered by theory - and who wouldn't? - this book is a tonic, sounding the tone of the future.--Claire Colebrook, Sparks Professor of English, Penn State University

Nomadic Subjects inspires renewed feminist commitment to the movements that are redefining gender and its meaning for both men and women in all levels of culture.--Phyllis Kaminski "Feminist Teacher "

[Braodotti's] lively writing is a wonderful blend of the person and academic.... This book belongs in every library that serves graduate students and faculty in women's studies and philosophy.--Choice

Product Description

For more than fifteen years, Nomadic Subjects has guided 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's creative style vividly renders a productive crisis of modernity. From a feminist perspective, she recasts embodiment, sexual difference, and complex concepts through relations to technology, historical events, and popular culture.

This thoroughly revised and expanded edition retains all but two of Braidotti's original essays, including her investigations into epistemology's relation to the "woman question;" feminism and biomedical ethics; European feminism; and the possible relations between American feminism and European politics and philosophy. A new piece integrates Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the "becoming-minoritarian" more deeply into modern democratic thought, and a chapter on methodology explains Braidotti's methods while engaging with her critics. A new introduction muses on Braidotti's provocative legacy.
