Editorial Reviews


Bridging the gap that too often exists between theories of agency and embodiment, this exciting collection examines how bodies are agentic and how human agency in the world is embodied. This volume will be welcomed by feminists and others who are interested in the ethical, political, economic, and global dimensions of human bodily agency. --Shannon Sullivan, Penn State University

The essays contained in this volume offer fascinating philosophical, religious, scientific, historical, and political reflections on what it means to express (and fail to express) agency in and through one's bodily interactions with other bodies. Above all, Embodiment and Agency reveals the diverse ways in which the experience of agency is always already embodied, thereby countering traditional liberal views that identify agency with conscious activity or a particular set of cognitive capacities. --Gail Weiss, George Washington University
