Bodies, Affects, Politics: The Clash of Bodily Regimes



(RGS-IBG Book Series) 1st Edition 

by Steve Pile (Author) 

This book seeks to understand the coexistence of bodily regimes and the politics that emerge from the clash between them:

  • Presents a novel conceptual model for understanding the relationship between bodies and affects
  • Reworks Rancière's notions of the distribution of the sensible and the aesthetic unconscious
  • Establishes a dynamic and multiple understanding of the repressive, distributive and communicative unconscious by rethinking Freudian psychoanalysis
  • Utilizes a variety of empirical materials, from Hollywood movies to Freud's case studies
  • Sets its argument about politics within the context of significant social events to ensure its conceptual and empirical material is relevant to the contemporary political moment
