Questions of embodiment have become central to feminist theory in the last twenty-five years, challenging the prevailing notion of disembodied reason in modern epistemology and criticizing modern political theory for separating human facts of death, birth, need, sex, from the sphere of the political. Iris Marion Young, at the vanguard of this movement in feminist and political philosophy, here collects her previously published influential articles on the female body experience, as well as new articles written specially for this volume, and an introduction that draws out the themes, issues, and methods of the articles. This is a landmark collection for those interested in feminist scholarship and the myriad of disciplines it touches.
