    1. Just finished this on a plane. Fantastic. The front chapters on Darwin were wonderful. Elizabeth Grosz is a champ for reading Darwin. If you ask me, the main thing wrong with the entire 20th century is that people didn't read or misread Darwin. Grosz's call for feminists to look at Darwin (and others) for how their thinking can advance the feminist project, rather than engaging in criticisms of their work as sexist, is crucial for the health of feminism. Identity politics is a dead end when prac [...]

    2. "Pleasure is a crucial hinge, a bodily resource, that is of enormous strategic utility in the ongoing interplay and transformations of power and resistance. Pleasure is that which induces bodies to participate in power; pleasure is that which provides power with some of its techniques for the extraction of information or knowledge, and for imposing discipline through the subject’s very complicity in speaking and acting according to requirements of disciplinary regimes. But if pleasure can func [...]

    3. i could be confused but this book started with an emphasis on darwinian time. then it started being cliff notes for irigaray and deleuze. i like the use of these thinkers to evolve a transformative female modality. a train of thought that thinks the feminist subject as one in relation, which is the only one that i actually know of, the relational agent par excellence. but the book only starts actually theorizing near the end, and that kind of got on my nerves.
