Gender by Claire Colebrook

Book Description

Why has Western thought been so persistent in its organisation of human bodies, and other categories, in terms of the binary opposition male and female? Is gender nothing more than an ideology, or does it have its basis in sexual difference? This invaluable introductory guide offers a clear overview of the concept, and problem, of gender. Claire Colebrook places the term in its historical contexts and traces its development from the Enlightenment to the present, before moving on to the evolution of the concept of gender from within the various stances of feminist criticism, and exploring recent developments in queer theory and post-feminism. Close analysis of key literary texts, including Frankenstein, Paradise Lost and A Midsummer Night's Dream, shows how specific styles of literature enable reflection on gender.

Books By Author Claire Colebrook

Agamben by Claire Colebrook Agamben, Paperback (December 2015)

Until recently, "continental" philosophy has been tied either to the German tradition of phenomenology or to French post-structuralist concerns with the conditions of language and textuality.

Jacques Derrida by Claire Colebrook Jacques Derrida, Hardback (November 2014)

Presenting both an examination of the key concepts central to his thinking and a broader study of how that thinking shifted over a lifetime, this book offers the reader a clear, systematic and fresh examination of the astounding breadth of Derrida's philosophy.

Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics and the Digital by Claire Colebrook Blake, Deleuzian Aesthetics and the Digital, Hardback (January 2012)

Drawing on the theories of digital media and on the materiality of words and images, this study makes three original claims about the work of William Blake. It explores these three claims through the concept of incarnation.
