Volatile Bodies: Toward a Corporeal Feminism – Elizabeth Grosz – Google Books

Indiana University Press I gros this work will be a landmark in future feminist thinking. It will not only introduce feminists to an enriching set of theoretical perspectives but sets a high critical standard for feminist dialogues on the status of the body.

Human biology is inherently social and has no pure or natural “origin” outside of culture. Volatil the raw material of social and cultural organization, it is “incomplete” and thus subject to the endless rewriting and social inscription that constitute all sign systems.


These thinkers are not providing an account of “human” corporeality but of male corporeality. Grosz then turns to corporeal experiences unique to women—menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, menopause. Her examination of female experience lays the groundwork for developing theories of sexed corporeality rather than merely rectifying flawed models of male corpireal.
