"Disputed Subjects" analyzes the assumptions behind contemporary notions of justice and knowledge and discusses why modernity cannot be emancipatory. The text explores the effects of gender relations in modern political ideas and theories of knowledge. The author identifies problematic aspects of discourses such as psychoanalysis, postmodernism and feminist theory. Special attention is paid to recurring difficulties with maternity, sexuality and race within feminist theory, and the inadequacies of postmodern accounts of subjectivity and gender. The book analyzes psychoanalysis to identify its particular organization of knowledge and power. Previous owner's signature on ffep.188pp.
