Book Description Oxford University Press, Oxford, New York, Toronto, Melbourne &c., 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. As-new 1st ed. hardcover, as-new mylar-protected jacket, as-new library-durable Oxford-navy-blue linen over boards cover, as-new edges & corners & titles gold-stamped on spine, immaculate text-block exterior, as-new binding, pristine interior handsomely printed on superb paper * 6.25" x 9.50", 0.90 kg, xxiv+517 (541) pp. * What is a woman? & what does it mean to be a feminist? 14 years after the publication of her internationally-renowned "Sexual Textual Politics" (1985) Toril Moi re-engaged feminist theory in "What is a Woman?" (1999) in which she challenged the dominant trends in contemporary feminist & cultural thought & argued for the feminism of freedom inspired by Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex." Written in a clear & engaging style, "What is a Woman?" brings together two book-length theoretical interventions, Moi's work on Freud & Bourdieu & her studies of desire & knowledge in literature. In the controversial title essay, Moi radically rethinks debates about sex, gender & the body & challenges the commonly held belief that the sex/gender distinction is fundamental to all feminist theory. Moi rejects every attempt to define masculinity & femininity, including efforts to define femininity as that which 'cannot be defined.' In the 2nd book-length essay, 'I Am a Woman', Toril Moi reworks the relationship between the personal & the philosophical, pursuing ways to write theory that do not neglect the claims of the personal. Setting up an encounter between contemporary theory & Simone de Beauvoir, Moi radically rethinks the need & the difficulty of finding one's own philosophical voice by placing it in new theoretical contexts. A sustained refusal to lay down theoretical or political requirements for femininity & a powerful argument for a feminism of freedom, "What is a Woman?" is a deeply original contribution to feminist theory.
