Resistance, Flight, Creation by Dorothea Olkowski

Book Description

Thirteen women at the forefront of philosophy locate new feminist points of view within the discipline by rigorously engaging works of contemporary French philosophy. In so doing, they both transform the standard practices of the field and carve out new territory. These writers amplify the work of feminist philosophers such as Simone de Beauvoir, Luce Irigaray, and Sarah Kofman in ways that are both stylistically and substantively creative. They also appropriate for radical feminist use the works of male philosophers such as Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Jean-Paul Sartre.The essays illustrate the manner in which feminist philosophers bypass traditional methodology in favor of a disciplinary freedom characterized by fluid methodologies-best exemplified in Beauvoir's work-and by the employment of imaginative forms, including the autobiographical and the poetic. The modes of inquiry used here range variously from psychoanalysis and existentialism to deconstruction, post-structuralism, and newly resurgent phenomenology. This volume also contains a comprehensive bibliography of feminist thinkers who are enacting French philosophy in English, German, and French.

Other by Dorothea Olkowski Other, Hardback (April 2007)

The western philosophical tradition has only recently explored alterity, in particular the alterity of woman as the other of man. This volume reflects on the ethical implications of this, and on the need for a rethinking of the implicit structures of Western philosophy, which exclude women as subjects who conceptualize the world and society.

Universal (In the Realm of the Sensible) by Dorothea Olkowski Universal (In the Realm of the Sensible), Hardback (March 2007)

The Universal (In the realm of the sensible) proposes a radical, new philosophical system that moves from ontology to ethics.

Gilles Deleuze and the Ruin of Representation by Dorothea Olkowski Gilles Deleuze and the Ruin of Representation, Paperback (October 1999)

This text presents an exploration of the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze. The work of contemporary artist Mary Kelly has been central to the author's thinking. In Kelly she finds an artist at work whose creative acts are in themselves the ruin of representation as a whole.
