Over the past fifteen years, Nomadic Subjects has guided the discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory. Exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, especially the concept of difference within European philosophy and political theory, Rosi Braidotti introduced avenues for thinking freely, if not positively, about difference, affirmation, and the nomadic subject. Braidotti's creative style vividly renders what she sees as a productive crisis of modernity. From a feminist perspective, she recasts embodiment, sexual difference, and complex concepts in relation to technology, historical events, and popular culture.Questions of "nomadism" are more relevant than ever, particularly given the popularity of Deleuzian thought and the phenomenon of economic and cultural globalization. Braidotti's approach remains fresh in comparison to mainstream American theory, especially because of its distance from dominant gender and queer theory trends. This thoroughly revised and expanded new edition retains all but two of Braidotti's original essays, including her investigations into epistemology's relation to the "woman question;" feminism and biomedical ethics; European feminism; and the possible relations between American feminism and European politics and philosophy. A new piece integrates more deeply into modern democratic thought Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the "becoming-minoritarian," and a chapter on methodology explains Braidotti's methods while also engaging with her critics. A new introduction muses on Braidotti's legacy, and the book's textual references are updated throughout.

Rosi Braidotti was born in Italy, raised in Australia, graduated from the Sorbonne in Paris, and became the founding professor of the women's studies program in Utrecht. She is Distinguished University Professor at Utrecht University and founding director of its Centre for the Humanities.
