Power and Feminist Agency in Capitalism

Toward a New Theory of the Political Subject

Claudia Leeb

  • Develops a new theoretical framework of the political subject-in-outline to advance current debates in political and feminist theorizing that aim to address the tensions inherent in the idea of the political subject.
  • Provides new insights on how to conceptualize the relationships between subject and object, theory and practice, the universal and the particular, and mind and body.
  • Applies the developed theoretical framework to rethink the feminist political subject and the working-class woman as a political subject.
  • Brings new thinkers in contemporary political and feminist theorizing (Marx, Adorno and Lacan) and explains their relevance for rethinking political subjectivity.
