Elizabeth Grosz - corporeal feminism

Updated on February 8, 2013

Philosophy, time, space & body politics

For more than thirty years Elizabeth Grosz has been writing influential articles, essays and books combining and juxtaposing philosophy, architecture, sciences and feminism.

In her texts Grosz often brings other philosophers in discussion with her: Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler and Jacques Derrida, to name a few.

With her clear discursive style, with acumen, Grosz leads her reader to the depths of time and space while opening fresh and new angles to different concepts. For these reasons I have always enjoyed reading Grosz.

What does it mean to think about time through philosophy? Henri Bergson formulated this question in the nineteenth century. Gilles Deleuze built upon this framework during the late 20th century, especially with his writings on cinema.

Elizabeth Grosz introduces the question about thinking time to the 21st century in her Time Travels: Feminism, Nature, Power through the angles of
legal studies, new technologies and debates in Darwinism.

This recent book from Grosz reads like a great detective story. For anybody interested exploring the question of time, this is a truly inspiring reading experience. Warmly recommended.

To be outside allows one a fresh perspective on the inside. In Architecture from the Outside philosopher Elizabeth Grosz brings us at the intersection of philosophy and architecture, where she examines how we understand and inhabit space.

Following the work of philosophers such as Henri Bergson, Roger Caillois, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, Luce Irigaray and Jacques Lacan, Grosz raises questions about space, inhabitation and building while simultaneously exploring the ways in which two disciplines that are fundamentally outside each other, architecture and philosophy, can meet in a third space in order to interact outside of their internal constraints.

Space, Time and Perversion: Essays on the Politics of Bodies

by Elizabeth Grosz, 1995

Space, Time and Perversion is a diverse collection of essays from a renowned feminist philosopher Elizabeth Grosz, establishing a fresh point in the debate surrounding bodies and "body politics" through resituating and rethinking the body.

In Space, Time and Perversion Grosz directs her attention to the work of Michel Foucault, Teresa de Lauretis, Gilles Deleuze, Judith Butler and Alphonso Lingis. Exploring the fields of architecture, philosophy and, in a controversial way, queer theory, Grosz shows how these fields have conceptually stripped our bodies their specificity, their corporeality and their production as bodies and how the functioning of bodies transforms understanding of space and time, knowledge and desire.
