Summary
"Do the meanings of the innumerable fetish-signs appearing in recent artworks depend on the senders' intentions? Is the meaning of postfeminist glamor the celebration of femininity that its practitioners tout to counter ersatz macho posturing? How are pregnant-father figurations in religion, folk tales, art, and Hollywood related to "feminine writing"? What is one to make of the fetishization of skin occurring all around us? And what if men and women have been fetishizing femininity all along despite orthodox interpretations of fetish-signs as stand-ins for a single male body part? To fully examine and clarify these and other issues involving gender, postcolonial, and artistic otherness, this book argues for a more adequate view of performativity than presently available from speech-act theory and certain strains of linguistic pragmatics. In drawing simultaneously on Charles Sanders Peirce's pragmatic analysis of signs, Freudian and post-Freudian psychoanalytic inquiry, and radical feminist thought, the concern of Beyond Fetishism is with the ethical and aesthetic import of the psychopragmatics resulting from this intermingling."--Jacket
