Editorial Reviews

Review

Drucilla Cornell's ambitious and provocative book reworks in radical ways the very boundaries of feminism, legal theory, and recent continental philosophy. Cornell moves deftly and with unsettling conceptual sophistication from a critique of some feminist legal scholarship, the phallocentrism of philosophy and law, to a call for a utopian recognition of difference. (Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley)

Drucilla Cornell is the most intellectually sophisticated legal academic writing on these issues today. The philosophical rigor she brings to any question along with the strong imagining of human needs and aspirations makes her contribution to current debates unique and valuable. (Stanley Fish, University of Illinois at Chicago)

Cornell's work not only reflects incredible philosophical and theoretical breadth, but it is motivated by a powerful concrete and practical vision. Beyond Accommodation is written out of the conviction. . .that women will never be able to attain full equality in western societies until they can be regarded in the public eye as full legal subjects, bearing an authority equal to male citizens. (Patricia Huntington, Loyola University of Chicago)

Drucilla Cornell shows that rewriting the feminine is part of undoing the material conditions of suffering rather than a luxurious alternative to understanding those conditions. Her book is both a brilliant appropriation of psychoanalysis and perhaps the most intelligent critique of it in feminist theory today. . . . Indispensable for legal and political theory and for those who like an arguement rather than imaginary gestures towards one. (Teresa Brennan, Florida Atlantic University, University of Amsterdam)
