DESCRIPTION

Feminist philosophy, psychoanalysis, existential phenomenology and queer theory have raised stimulating questions about the body. How important are our bodies to our identity? Can I change my gender? Do men and women experience the world differently? Can there be an ethics of sexual difference? The unit examines how the body is theorised, how it interacts with questions of culture and class, and explores the implications of our understanding of the body and gender for epistemology, ethics and politics. Students of philosophy, gender studies, fine arts and psychology will find this an exciting unit.
