Immortality And Resurrection: The Dichotomy Between Thought and Physicality.

Social Possibilities in The Female Man, by Joanna Russ

- Often when looking at issues that involve the politics of socialization, the counter-response is often an archetypal polarization of a given personal philosophy.

These polarized views are a good way to compartmentalize different ideals and social orders if used to separate. In Joanna Russ’ The Female Man there are many ways to take the fragmentation of the four main characters of the story, the potential outcomes of each social possibility....   [tags: Characterizations, Feminism]
