Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Interdisciplinary exploration of the scope and impact of Teresa Brennan’s lifework.

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.

“These extraordinary essays show the far-ranging significance of Teresa Brennan’s thought, while at the same time continue her project of envisioning the possibility of creating something new from the remains of patriarchy and globalization. Situating her work within the feminist tradition known as ‘Australian materialism,’ the essays included here respond to Brennan’s work on affectivity, mourning, modernity, contemporary biological and neurological research, and ethical responsibility. Together they offer sustenance and new directions of thought for those of us who are left to carry on the work of this much-admired and important thinker.” — Peg Birmingham, author of Hannah Arendt and Human Rights: The Predicament of Common Responsibility
