Touching Thought free pdf The blindness to ontological questioning in feminist theory has left a lacuna in scholarly study that "Touching Thought" - a study at the intersection between ontological meditation and feminist theorizing on sexual difference -seeks to fill. Ellen Mortensen's new work critiques the language and theoretical pathways of contemporary feminist theories such as Judith Butler, Rosi Braidotti, Elizabeth Grosz, Luce Irigaray, Theresa de Lauretis and Donna Haraway to reveal a problematic predilection for technological language at the expense of ontological inquiry. The volume ranges across feminist epistemology and ethics, the politics and performativity, the aesthetics of body/power, and the question of sexual difference and concludes with an examination of the different philosophical and theoretical attempts at undertaking an ontological questioning of sexual difference. This foundational work should serve as preparation for scholars and feminist and queer theory and continental philosophy seeking alternative pathways of feminist thought that encourage fundamental thinking on the subject of freedom.
