Example text

It is clear that both sensibility and imagination operate, in the first Critique, under the management of understanding Kant writes, for example, of a `synthesis which does not belong to the senses' by 5 `understanding determines the sensibility'. But passivity here is constrained,in which that it is constituted through the relation of sensibility to the activity of understanding, from the perspectiveof understanding, and thus not transcendentally,as Kant writes, it is `a matter of fact' that the unity apparently belonging to sensibility, through which the forms of intuition become formalized and conceptual, is determined by 6 understanding.

So what of becoming-woman? This too must be real. Philosophy has associatedwomen with nature, matter, spaceand babies, ever since Plato spoke in the Timaeus of the receptacle or womb whose neutral plasticity accepted without discrimination the impress of eternal forms. The receptacle nurses becoming, but is itself immutable. It is this supposedpermanenceof function attendant on women which becoming-woman seeks to break away from; from women as reproductive and essentially sexual creatures to women as self-organizing systems which are effected only through their interactions with other machines in their environment, which is no longer defined as nature, indeed, which has no definition until it is generated.
