Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0791427293, Hardcover)Interprets postmodernity in relation to the body--the "somatological a priori," and applies current critical theory to issues of gender, popular culture fashion, and magic, as well as the Western philosophical/theological tradition.
Covering a wealth of authors and literature from Baudrillard to Foucault, from Freud to Lacan, from Plato to Heidegger, from the study of women's fashion to Girardian perspectives on the sacrificial victim, Fire and Roses shows that the "postmodern theme" is something much more than the play of disconnection and diversity. Postmodernism is, in fact, a kind of "epistemology" of the somatic remainder that has been the "stranger"in the house of Western thought.
