Living Attention: On Teresa Brennan

Abstract:

As an internationally respected feminist philosopher, radical social and political theorist, and tireless activist, Teresa Brennan (1952-2003) was one of the most provocative thinkers of our time. Living Attention is a tribute to the significance of her thought and a testament to the transformative power of her life. This book demonstrates the scope of Brennan's thought as it continues to challenge academics, public intellectuals, and government leaders. Her concerns ranged from the implications of psychoanalytic theory to relations between men and women to the effects of globalization on our ecological system. The contributors to this volume-from a broad variety of disciplines, including philosophy, literature, government, literary and critical theory, and women's studies-take up Brennan's call to radical thinking and, by examining different aspects of Brennan's work, critically engage with her oeuvre.
