About the Author:

Patricia J. Huntington is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University in Chicago.

Review:

Huntington s book is, in part, an effort to offer a philosophy that can make way for social change Huntington s book provides a compelling argument that feminists would do well to ally with certain aspects of Heidegger s thought. Hypatia
Ecstatic Subjects is a truly brilliant book that will undoubtedly have a significant impact on feminist theory. Huntington s book demands that we rethink the political importance of thinkers like Heidegger for feminist politics. Erudite and clearly written this book will be a must for both Women s Studies and Philosophy courses. Drucilla Cornell, author of The Philosophy of the Limit and The Imaginary Domain
Patricia Huntington deftly defends a dialectical theory of the self, one that treats the self as both constituting and constituted, as situated concretely within beliefs and practices that are ours to take up and transform. Huntington skillfully mediates between a one-sidedly modernist notion of a purely autonomous self and the tendency of postmodernists to let the self volatilize in a flurry of free floating events. An extremely important work for students of Heidegger, feminism, and post-structuralism. John D. Caputo, author of Demythologizing Heidegger"
