Synopsis: Book by McNay, Lois

From Library Journal: This is yet another addition to a growing body of literature on the French theorist that includes Jana Sawicki's Discipling the Body: Feminism, Power and the Body (Routledge, 1991), James Miller's The Passion of Michel Foucault ( LJ 1/93), Irene Diamond and Lee Quinby's Feminism and Foucault (Northeastern Univ. Pr., 1988), and Didier Eribon's Michel Foucault (Harvard Univ. Pr., 1991). Arguing against critics who believe that Foucault's notion of docile bodies is inadequate for feminist theory, McNay contends that the ethics of the self that emerges from Foucault's later work offers clear convergence between Foucauldian and feminist thought. McNay's detailed argument is often obscured by repetition and awkward writing, but her book offers an important counterpoint to feminist criticism of Foucault. The author, a research fellow at St. John's College, Oxford, has also provided a valuable bibliography. This book is recommended for academic libraries with large collections in critical theory.

Book Description Polity Press / Blackwell Publishers, Cambridge, 1992. Paperback octavo, very good condition, light crease spine, minor edgewear corners. 217 pp. This book offers a systematic attempt to explore the points of convergence between feminist theory and the work of philosopher Michel Foucault. The author argues that feminism has something to gain from a careful reading of Foucaults's work, and that, in turn, the concerns of feminist analysis can shed light on some of the limitations of Foucault's work. This accessible book addresses some of the most important issues in feminist theory and contemporary social thought. It will be of particular interest to students of women's studies, sociology, politics and literature. Bookseller Inventory # 23535
