In The Corporeal Turn, John Tambornino continues the all-important archaeological work of unearthing the body from its burial beneath layers of political history. In this book, John Tambornino brings the body back in to politics and political theory by staging a fascinating exchange among four key thinkers rarely brought together: Hannah Arendt, Charles Taylor, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Stuart Hampshire. The result? A masterful set of readings, set among illuminating examples from the contemporary scene, and an effective materialist counter (that is also indebted, never merely opposed) to the 'linguistic turn. -Bonnie Honig, Northwestern University.

In The Corporeal Turn, John Tambornino offers a thorough rethinking of ethical and political theory by emphasizing human embodiment, and the primacy of passion and need, in response to the neglect of these matters in much of contemporary thought. Tambornino calls for a 'corporeal turn' or, as he explains, sustained attention to human embodiment―something that is often occluded when priority is given to reason or language. Working through a diverse set of thinkers, exploring such themes as necessity and freedom, need and desire, nature and convention, and public and private, and noting vivid instances of politicized embodiment, Tambornino takes seriously Nietzsche's claim that philosophy has largely been an interpretation and a misunderstanding of the body. The result is nothing less than a new orientation to ethical and political theory―one that appreciates the complex relations of language, culture, politics, and corporeality―and a powerful intervention into these domains.
