Becomings by Elizabeth Grosz

Book Description

With the advent of the new millennium, the notion of the future, and of time in general, has taken on greater significance in postmodern thought. Although the equally pervasive and abstract concept of space has generated a vast body of disciplines, time, and the related idea of "becoming" (transforming, mutating, and metamorphosing) have until now received little theoretical attention. This volume explores the ontological, epistemic, and political implications of rethinking time as a dynamic and irreversible force. Drawing on ideas from the natural sciences, as well as from literature, philosophy, politics, and cultural analyses, its authors seek to stimulate further research in both the sciences and the humanities which highlights the temporal foundations of matter and culture.The first section of the volume, "The Becoming of the World," provides a broad introduction to the concepts of time. The second section, "Knowing and Doing Otherwise," addresses the forces within cultural and intellectual practices which produce various becomings and new futures. It also analyzes how alternative models of subjectivity and corporeality may be generated through different conceptions of time. "Global Futures," the third section, considers the possibilities for the social, political, and cultural transformation of individuals and nations.

Books By Author Elizabeth Grosz

Jacques Lacan by Elizabeth Grosz Jacques Lacan, Hardback (October 2015)

Grosz gives a critical overview of Lacan's work from a feminist perspective. Discussing previous attempts to give a feminist reading of his work, she argues for women's autonomy based on an "indifference" to the Lacanian phallus.

Feminist Challenges by Elizabeth Grosz Feminist Challenges, Hardback (April 2013)

In this title, new and established scholars demonstrate the application of feminism in a range of academic disciplines including history, philosophy, politics, and sociology.

Becoming Undone by Elizabeth Grosz Becoming Undone, Paperback (September 2011)

Elizabeth Grosz addresses three related concepts-life, politics, and art-by exploring the implications of Charles Darwin s account of the evolution of species.

Chaos, Territory, Art by Elizabeth Grosz Chaos, Territory, Art, Hardback (May 2008)

Argues that art, especially architecture, music, and painting, is born from the disruptive forces of sexual selection. This book approaches art as a form of erotic expression that connects sensory richness with primal desire. It argues that the meaning of art comes from the intensities and sensations it inspires, not just its intention.
