Theories of Desire

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

107 pp. Text in good condition despite damp stain to the bottom of the book throughout. Some page corners have been folded. Cover damp stained with some creasing and shelfwear.

"What do Lacan, Barthes, Derrida, Foucault, Kristeva, Cixous and Irigaray have in common? These giants of critical theory are all linked by their analyses of desire... 'Theories of Desire' looks at the role of desire in the works of these writers, as well as examining other major issues and themes of post-structuralism. Fuery considers the place of desire in psychoanalysis, philosophy, literary studies and feminism. In a lucid and accessible manner, he highlights the connections between desire and the critical analysis of subjectivity, language and culture. He examines the institutionalisation of desire, the relationship between language and desire, the relationship between language, discourse and desire, and notes the problems of dealing with women's desire in phallocentric contexts... For anyone seeking a comprehensible introduction to the arcane tangles of post-structuralism, this book will be an invaluable guide..." (description from blurb)
