Elizabeth Grosz’s work, on the other hand, emerged primarily out of explicatory account of French feminist and post-structuralist philosopher. Finally the work of Moira Gatens will be examined as an example of a philosopher project focusing on questions of difference, embodiment and imagination from a distinctively Spinozist perceptive, while at the same time maintaining a strong engagement with Australian feminism.
