Abstract:

"This volume attempts to situate the central concerns of contemporary feminist theory - aesthetics, embodiment, performance, sexual difference, ethics, testimony - within Lyotard's writings, to show that these concerns have always been there. Contributors discuss film theory, body modification, feminist critiques of science, postholocaust art, the feminine sublime, and theater. As a whole, the book serves as a meditation on the nature of "the political" as understood by Lyotard, and demonstrates the many different ways in which feminist concerns are taken up in discussions regarding the nature of the political in contemporary continental thought. An afterword by James Williams - one of the world's leading Lyotard commentators - is included."--Jacket.
