“Elizabeth Grosz has long been recognized as one of the most astute commentators on feminism, continental philosophy, and cultural studies. Renowned for her clarity and rigor, she has a well-deserved reputation as a major feminist philosopher. In Time Travels Grosz manages to surpass her already magisterial standards and produce a tour de force of originality. Here, Grosz finds her own voice and argues for a new theory of time and life. This is an exciting, inspired, and inspiring book.”—Claire Colebrook, author of Gilles Deleuze
“What does it mean to introduce time into thought? Bergson formulated this question in the nineteenth century; Deleuze took it up again in postwar France. In her philosophical travels through legal studies, new technologies, and debates in Darwinism, Elizabeth Grosz brilliantly pursues its punch for us today: What would it mean for feminism to include an evolutionary materialism of time, and what would it mean for it to become an ineliminable part of a ‘new Bergsonism’ of the twenty-first century?”—John Rajchman, author of The Deleuze Connections
