Nomadic Subjects

For more than fifteen years, Nomadic Subjectshas guided discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory, exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, especially the concept of difference within European philosophy and political theory. Rosi Braidotti's creative style vividly renders a productive crisis of modernity. From a feminist perspective, she recasts embodiment, sexual difference, and complex concepts through relations to technology, historical events, and popular culture. This thoroughly revised and expanded edition retains all but two of Braidotti's original essays, including her investigations into epistemology's relation to the "woman question;" feminism and biomedical ethics; European feminism; and the possible relations between American feminism and European politics and philosophy. A new piece integrates Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the "becoming-minoritarian" more deeply into modern democratic thought, and a chapter on methodology explains Braidotti's methods while engaging with her critics. A new introduction muses on Braidotti's provocative legacy.

This book seeks to bring in urban affairs, social justice issues, theory, communicative methods, media content analysis, policy, structural models, and organizations as well as voices to make it clear to the reader that the interconnectedness of the human interaction produces a society that we know today. We reproduce oppression among ourselves and within ourselves. It is only when these topics and disciplines meet, that we all learn more about what binds our minds, de/values our bodies, what we perpetuate ourselves. ?What now?'. This is a prevalent question that will breed a multitude of responses within a conversation or disconnect from the ideology of what solidarity or radicalism is with...
