9780822350712: Becoming Undone: Darwinian Reflections on Life, Politics, and Art

In Becoming Undone, Elizabeth Grosz addresses three related concepts—life, politics, and art—by exploring the implications of Charles Darwin’s account of the evolution of species. Challenging characterizations of Darwin’s work as a form of genetic determinism, Grosz shows that his writing reveals an insistence on the difference between natural selection and sexual selection, the principles that regulate survival and attractiveness, respectively. Sexual selection complicates natural selection by introducing aesthetic factors and the expression of individual will, desire, or pleasure. Grosz explores how Darwin’s theory of sexual selection transforms philosophy, our understanding of humanity in its male and female forms, our ideas of political relations, and our concepts of art. Connecting the naturalist’s work to the writings of Bergson, Deleuze, and Irigaray, she outlines a postmodern Darwinism that understands all of life as forms of competing and coordinating modes of openness. Although feminists have been suspicious of the concepts of nature and biology central to Darwin’s work, Grosz proposes that his writings are a rich resource for developing a more politicized, radical, and far-reaching feminist understanding of matter, nature, biology, time, and becoming.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Grosz is Professor of Women’s Studies and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. She is the author of several books, including Chaos, Territory, Art: Deleuze and the Framing of the Earth, as well as The Nick of Time: Politics, Evolution, and the Untimely and Time Travels: Feminism, Nature, Power, both also published by Duke University Press.

Review:

Becoming Undone allows us to hear with new ears the words of Bergson, Irigaray, Uexküll, Deleuze and Guattari, and especially Darwin. The result is a surprising and exciting feminism in conversation with biophilosophy and art practice. Elizabeth Grosz offers a rich, provocative, not-quite-materialist philosophy of life, matter, and the creative cosmos.”—Jane Bennett, author of Vibrant Matter: A Political Ecology of Things

“With a passionate call for philosophy and feminism to embrace the transformative power of life as difference, Becoming Undone describes with elegant arguments the unexpected legacy of Darwin in the ontology of Bergson, Deleuze, and Irigaray, as well as their promise for an as yet unforeseeable future.”—Paola Marrati, author of Gilles Deleuze: Cinema and Philosophy

"[A] provocative, thoroughly researched, and beautifully written exploration of the question of difference in its material, political, and aestheticdimensions. . . . Becoming Undone is a fascinating project, not only because of its invaluable contribution to the discourses of posthumanism and material feminism, but also due to its convincing interpretation of Darwinian theory as an intricate philosophical worldview." (Vera Coleman Studies in 20th and 21st Century Literature)

“Grosz’s book is well written and easily accessible even for someone who does not know a great deal about the theorists with whom she engages.” (Lasse Thomassen Perspectives on Politics)
