The Feminine Symptom

Aleatory Matter in the Aristotelian Cosmos

Emanuela Bianchi

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • This book bridges between the burgeoning contemporary interest in matter and its Western history in classical sources and gender theory.
  • Specifically, it shows how biological sexual difference provides a kind of structural scaffold for the Aristotelian cosmos
  • It further shows how that very scaffolding contains gaps and contradictions that lead to its own unraveling
