Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The first to incorporate Kofman's work into the current debates animating continental philosophy, Sarah Kofman's Corpus offers impressive contributions to the literature on Freud and Nietzsche, as well as feminist theory, philosophy of art, and Holocaust studies. It invigorates the contemporary landscape of French thought with the stakes introduced by Kofman's oeuvre, which emerges here in all its richness and irreverence, a call to engage anew with affirmation and becoming.— Margret Grebowicz, editor of Gender after Lyotard
