About this product
- DescriptionIn The Corporeal Turn, political theorist John Tamborni offers a thorough rethinking of ethical and political theory by emphasizing human embodiment, and the primacy of passion and need, in response to the neglect of these matters in much of contemporary thought. Tamborni calls for a 'corporeal turn' or, as he explains, sustained attention to human embodiment-something that is often occluded when priority is given to reason or language. Working through a diverse set of thinkers, exploring such themes as necessity and freedom, need and desire, nature and convention, and public and private, and ting vivid instances of politicized embodiment, Tamborni takes seriously Nietzsche's claim that philosophy has largely been an interpretation and misunderstanding of the body. The result is thing less than a new orientation to ethical and political theory-one that appreciates the complex relations of language, politics, culture and corporeality-and a powerful intervention into those domains.
