In Belief, Bodies, and Being, thirteen distinguished contributors present diverse and illuminating viewpoints on the issues of embodiment, materialism, and agency from feminist and postmodernist philosophical perspectives. Beginning by positing non-traditional ways of approaching ontological concerns (through the acknowledgment of agential realities and the usage of an ontology of tropes), the volume concludes by addressing highly specific, culturally constituted types of postmodern bodies, including monstrous, anorexic, and pharmaceutical bodies.
