dc.description.abstractFor these last two decades, the work of Shelley L. Tremain has been a point of reference in strands of disability studies scholarship rooted in the philosophical ideas of Michel Foucault. This monograph consolidates Tremain’s position as a prime user of Foucault’s work in disability studies, showing how his work is amenable to critical extensions in areas he did not explicitly consider. While clearly positioned in philosophy as a discipline, Tremain’s latest book shows how aspects of disability studies can call into question notions and practices of philosophical theorising; for this reason, this book is equally a book of philosophy of disability as much as it is a book about philosophising about disability in contemporary times. The book elegantly interweaves different registers of philosophical argumentation, genealogical analysis, feminist critique, political theory, and data from empirical research insofar as they all bear upon disability studies.en_GB
