Synopsis: Writing about changes in the notion of womanhood, Denise Riley examines, in the manner of Foucault, shifting historical constructions of the category of "women" in relation to other categories central to concepts of personhood: the soul, the mind, the body, nature, the social. Feminist movements, Riley argues, have had no choice but to play out this indeterminacy of women. This is made plain in their oscillations, since the 1790s, between concepts of equality and of difference. To fully recognize the ambiguity of the category of "women" is, she contends, a necessary condition for an effective feminist political philosophy.

About the Author: DENISE RILEY teaches at the University of East Anglia, UK, and has also held teaching posts at Brown University and at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. Her most recent books are The Words of Selves: Identification, Solidarity, Irony and Selected Poems.

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 1988. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 1988 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. An attempt to explore the idea that there are historical sedimentations of people into gendered categories, including the asymmetrical distances of both women and men from changing ideas of the human; the increasing saturation, from the late seventeenth century, of women with their sex; and the nineteenth century elisions between the social and women . It is argued that feminism cannot but play out the inescapable indeterminacy of women whether consciously or not, and that this is made plain in its oscillations, since the 1790s, between concepts of equality and of difference. The author maintains that a full recognition of the ambiguity of the category of women is not a semantic doubt, but a condition for an effective feminist political philosophy.
