From the Aleatory Feminine to Aleatory Feminism

(p.223) Coda: Matters Arising
The Feminine Symptom

Fordham University Press

The coda develops the political implications of the study. Starting with a consideration of Aristotle’s Politics, the politics of aleatory materialism as articulated by Althusser is discussed, and a genealogy of chance in relation to the feminine in Western thought is outlined. Teleology, understood in metaphysical, organismic, and historical registers, is contrasted with a history of aleatory materialism and a theorizing of the event in Derrida, as well as in new materialisms, with themes of gender and the aleatory feminine constantly in the foreground. A politics of aleatory feminism in the present is outlined and developed.
