Why Althusser Killed His Wife: Essays on Discourse and Violence by Geraldine Finn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


These essays explore and analyse issues of contemporary cultural concern: science, rationality, sex, violence, representation, ethics, politics, and spirituality. Although not always explicit, the perspective elaborated in and through them draws on an extensive knowledge of and familiarity with twentieth-century European philosophy, especially the phenomenology of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, the ethical and political writings of Jean-Paul Sartre, and the deconstructive project of Jacques Derrida.
