Feminism, Posthumanism


Critiques to the universal condition of the human have defied the boundaries of the body and what is meant to be considered as “normal” or “neutral”, prompting the-so-called posthuman turn. This book, written by Rosi Braidotti, elaborates on the thought that “mainstream posthuman scholarship has neglected femist theory” (p. 2), postulating feminist theory as not only a contributor, but also as a precursor of the posthuman turn. Braidotti aims at offering a more sophisticated analysis of the reframing of the human as an embodied and embedded “heterogeneous assemblage” (p. 6), that understands the prismic nature of feminism and builds on a multiple stanpoints emergent from the birth of ecofeminism, feminist studies of technoscience, LGBTQ+ theories, black feminisms, decolonial feminisms, and Indigenous feminisms and that recognises such complexity within the structural socio-economic dynamics and upcoming environmental challenges that shape the subject.
