By Ruth O'Brien,Martha Albertson Fineman

Bodies in Revolt argues that the american citizens with Disabilities Act (ADA) may possibly humanize capitalism by means of turning employers into care-givers, growing an ethic of care within the place of work. not like different feminists, Ruth O'Brien bases her ethics no longer on benevolence, yet really on self-preservation. She is determined by Deleuze's and Guttari's interpretation of Spinoza and Foucault's notion of corporeal resistance to teach how a place of work ethic that's neither communitarian nor individualistic might be dependent upon the rallying cry "one for all and involved in one."
