On the Feminist Philosophy of Gillian Howie : Materialism and Mortality (Hardcover)
About this item
Over three decades, Gillian Howie wrote at the forefront of philosophy and critical theory, before her untimely death in 2013. This collection of critical writings uses her writings-particularlyBetween Feminism and Materialism: A Question of Method (2010), Deleuze and Spinoza: Aura of Expressionism (2002), her popular co-edited collectionThird Wave Feminism: a Critical Exploration (2004), as well as various other contributions-as springboards to a consideration of the productive yet often resistant interrelationship between feminism and critical theory. The contributors also bring to this debate a serious consideration of Howie's late turn towards philosophies of death, life-limiting illness and therapy at stake in this volume, therefore, are the roles of concepts such as mortality, embodiment, alienation and dialectic in thinking through new forms of feminism and new forms of philosophy.
