Just Life: Bioethics and the Future of Sexual Difference
By: Mary C. Rawlinson (author)Paperback
Just Life reorients ethics and politics around the generativity of mothers and daughters rather than the right to property and the sexual proprieties of the oedipal drama. Invoking two concrete universals-everyone is born of a woman and everyone needs to eat-Rawlinson rethinks labor and food as relationships that make ethical claims and sustain agency. Just Life counters the capitalization of bodies under biopower with the solidarity of sovereign bodies.
Mary C. Rawlinson is professor and chair of philosophy at Stony Brook University.
