"These extraordinary essays show the far-ranging significance of Teresa Brennan's thought, while at the same time continue her project of envisioning the possibility of creating something new from the remains of patriarchy and globalization. Situating her work within the feminist tradition known as 'Australian materialism,' the essays included here respond to Brennan's work on affectivity, mourning, modernity, contemporary biological and neurological research, and ethical responsibility. Together they offer sustenance and new directions of thought for those of us who are left to carry on the work of this much-admired and important thinker." - Peg Birmingham, author of Hannah Arendt and Human Rights: The Predicament of Common Responsibility
