This major new book offers a highly original account of ethical andpolitical subjectivity in contemporary culture. It makes a strongcase for a non-unitary or nomadic conception of the subject, inopposition to the claims of ideologies such as conservatism,liberal individualism and techno-capitalism.

Braidotti takes a bold stand against moral universalism, whileoffering a vigorous defence of nomadic ethics against the chargesof relativism and nihilism. She calls for a new form of ethicalaccountability that takes "Life" as the subject, not the object, ofenquiry. This ethics is presented as a fundamental reconfigurationof our being in the world and it calls for more conceptualcreativity in the production of worldviews that can better enableus to behave ethically in a technologically and globally mediatedworld. The nomadic ethical subject negotiates successfully thecomplex tension between the multiplicity of political forces on theone hand and the sustained commitment to emancipatory politics onthe other.

Transpositions provides an intellectually rich guide tothe leading critical debates of our time and will be of greatinterest to scholars and students throughout the humanities andsocial sciences.

Review:

"A rich, immensely generous, and quite beautiful book."

London Review of Books


"Playing on Braidotti’s inspiration room music andgenetics in her definition of transpositions. I read her wise,smart, inviting book as itself a “transposon”-i.e. amobile vehicle for risky change in the score of post humanistbecoming that is mortal life. Braidotti transplants vigorousphilosophical shoots into worldly solid as she cultivates lessdeath-defying, more nomadic, and insatiably curious and passionateethics for our schizophrenic biotechnological times."

Donna J. Haraway, University of California at SantaCruz


"This is a remarkably strong book, especially in its negotiationof the complex tension between the multiplicity of political forceson the one hand and the sustained commitment to emancipatorypolitics (without essential identity) on the other. A substantialintervention in social and political theory."


Claire Colebrook, Edinburgh University
