Relating Narratives by Adriana Cavarero
Book DescriptionRelating Narratives is a major new work by the philosopher and feminist thinker Adriana Cavarero. First published in Italian to widespread acclaim, Relating Narratives is a fascinating and challenging new account of the relationship between selfhood and narration. Drawing a diverse array of thinkers from both the philosophical and the literary tradition, from Sophocles and Homer to Hannah Arendt, Karen Blixen, Walter Benjamin and Borges, Adriana Cadarero's theory of the 'narratable self' shows how narrative models in philosophy and literature can open new ways of thinking about formation of human identities. By showing how each human being has a unique story that can be told about them, Adriana Cavarero inaugurates an important shift in thinking about subjectivity and identity which relies not upon categorical or discursive norms, but rather seeks to account for 'who' each one of us uniquely is.

Inclinations, Paperback (November 2016)
Cavarero refutes a long-standing set of assumptions in moral philosophy by contesting the classical figure of the homo erectus or 'upright man, ' and by proposing a feminist, altruistic, open model of the subjectone inclined toward others. "
For More Than One Voice, Paperback (January 2005)
The human voice does not deceive. The one who is speaking is inevitably revealed by the singular sound of her voice, no matter "what" she says. Starting from the given uniqueness of every voice, Cavarero rereads the history of philosophy through its peculiar evasion of this embodied uniqueness.
