About the book:

In this book, Elizabeth Grosz rethinks the notion of subjectivity, not in terms of the mind, subjectivity or interiority, but in terms of bodies and surfaces. A deconstruction and displacement of the mind/body opposition has traditionally privileged the mind at the expense of bodies. However, if bodies become the centre of analysis then certain issues and relations are given prominence: most strikingly the differences between sexually different bodies. In questioning feminist and philosophical presumptions about subjectivity, new directions for research are suggested. Elizabeth Grosz is the author of "Sexual Subversions" and "Jacques Lacan".
