A part of SUNY sequence in Gender Theory.
Demonstrates the dramatic interaction of parts that contain the suggestions of norm, bisexuality, and development.
A incredible and unique reimagining of sexuality, Sleights of cause examines how thoughts lend themselves to power/knowledge formations. Many modern French philosophers make incidental use of the concept of a ruse. Its names are legion: “duplicity,” “concealment,” “forgetting,” and “subterfuge,” between others. Mary Beth Mader employs Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy of the concept that to explain 3 particularly conceptual ruses, or sleights, that make up a part of the conceptual help for the concept that of intercourse. those are the sleights linked to the ideas of norm, bisexuality, and improvement. Mader argues that thoughts can trick us, and exhibits how they could impact conceptual sleights, or what she calls sleights of cause. She concludes via delivering a powerful synthesis of insights from Foucault and Deleuze to increase these right into a inspiration for a conceptual subsequent step for imagining the constructions of sexuality as eros.
“Mary Beth Mader’s Sleights of cause is an unique and critical standpoint at the importance of Deleuze’s paintings for feminist conception, using features of his inspiration hitherto unexploited for these purposes.” — philoSOPHIA
“In addition to making her personal philosophical notion, Mary Beth Mader pulls off anything nobody else has even tried, to my knowledge—namely, to deliver Gilles Deleuze’s rigorous analyses of the character of the recommendations in what's Philosophy? to endure at the thought of sexuality. the result's an injection of conceptual rigor into debates that hitherto were extra considering ancient issues. it is a awesome book.” — Daniel W. Smith, coeditor of Gilles Deleuze: photograph and Text
“Somewhere among mere error and dialectical illusions, Mader’s ‘sleights of reason’ are biases that derive from the facility of ideas to consult themselves. Tendentious thoughts similar to ‘norm,’ ‘bisexuality,’ and ‘development’ purport to consult real items, yet really refer purely to their very own skill to constitution adventure. Like Jacquemarts, they hammer domestic a manner of considering, again and again remarkable us as self-evident good points of the realm. by way of exhibiting intimately how the 3 sleights of her subtitle got here to manipulate glossy conceptions of sexuality, Mader frees us from their conceptual bell tower.” — Andrew Cutrofello, writer of The Owl at sunrise: A Sequel to Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit
