Life in the Flesh

Adam G. Cooper (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

From de Beauvoir to Wittig, Friedan and Millett to Butler, radical feminist theory has for many years ironically manifested a somatophobic strain. The separation of gender from sex has resulted in an anthropological rupture in which the flesh is either marginalized or politicized — in either case, divested of its personalistic and semitive status. By contrast, the personalist philosophy of Lublin Thomism brings together realist metaphysics, biblical nuptuality, and gender complementarity in a perspective that affirms the full creative potential, and revelatory trajectory, of both and each of the sexes.

Keywords:   feminism, sex, gender, male, female, Butler, Beauvoir, marriage, body-language, motherhood
