Temporality and 'sorge' in the ethical fashioning of the feminist self

Kalpana Ram

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Temporality and self/other relations are absoulutely basic structures in our social construction as beings, but feminism (and other projects that share some of the features to be singled out) is able to give us unique access to these structures, which are normally hidden or muted in everyday experience. It is able to do so by virtue of its action orientation towards social change, which gives a certain affective charge and urgency to these underlying structures of human experience and, in doing so, renders them more directly accessible.
