Most Helpful Customer Reviews

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Nigel Danby on 9 Dec. 2000
Format: Paperback
In a stimulating and original collection of essays, Csordas and his colleagues map out an alternative theory of embodiment to that tired old Foucauldian constructivism.Instead of theorising the body as a passive effect of discourse, the authors understand embodiment as "the existential condition of cultural life." Drawing on the work of Merleau-Ponty, here is an approach to social theory which goes beyond textual analysis to take seriously the joys and sufferings of the lived body.
