#AUSReadingMonth 2019 The Thinking Woman

by N@ncy




Julienne Van Loon engages with the work of
six leading contemporary thinkers and writers
Rosi Braidotti (ch 6, Friendship),
Nancy Holmstrom, Siri Hustvedt,
Laura Kipnis (ch 1, Love),
Julia Kristeva and Marina Warner.


Chapters 1 and 6 stand out for me…most captivating.
Other readers may find ch 3-5 also fascinating.


It is buoyant, intelligent and very satisfying book
as it delivers a solid dose of thought about
love, work, wonder, fear, friendship and play.


Ms Van Loon reveals we are in this together
…but we are not one in the same.


Rosi Braidotti’s inspiration was Spinoza.
I found this the most interesting part of the book.


Trust in our shared intimacy with and knowledge of
the world and our lived experience of it.


Ms Van loon does share her intimate experiences….
