Re: aesthetics of existence

Another source is by Lois McNay, _Foucault and Feminism_. Also Rosi
Braidotti's work: _Patterns of Dissonance_, and _Nomadic Subjects_. Judith
Butler is also inspiring.

I'm wondering how Foucault's later work is applicable to gender. On the
one hand he suggests ways in which non-regulatory modes of subjectivity are
possible. On the other hand, such ways are constituted by the possibility
of a number of privileged spaces and techniques of the self that appear
to have accrued to men, and not women. In other words, what liberational
techniques of the self are free, at the same time, of the truths that
construct gendered differences?
