This was definitely one of the best books on my feminist theory reading list Barad s attention to detail is convincing and her conclusions are compelling and fascinating Plus, despite being about quantum physics, this is one of the clearest works of feminist theory I ve read lately.

This is one of the greatest philosophical books I have ever read Karen Barad draws on figures such as Judith Bulter, Donna Haraway, and Michel Foucault to investigate the ontological implications of the insights in quantum physics of Niels Bohr She argues for a completely new way of looking at the world, which she calls agential realism, where the relationship preexists and constitutes the relata Subject and object or rather, the agencies of observation and the object of observation are not inde [...]

Philosophy Science studies Feminist theory Race theory Postcolonial theory Post Marxist theory Poststructuralist theory And Quantum mechanics Ugh.Probably the most gruelling book I have ever read on the topics You ll need a tremendously tough mind and exceedingly tender heart to read it and finish it.

3.5 stars I really wanted to love this book, as someone with a background and aspiration in physics, philosophy, and moral cosmologies But it did not quite live up to my expectations Barad gets points enough to bump her up.5 from 3 stars for engaging seriously and passionately with quantum physics, ethics, and philosophy in close to equal measure, in particular with her premise of the fascinating Heisenberg Bohr correspondence and much later in the book with her 100 odd page chapter chp 7 on var [...]

I m not a scholarly reader and this book s language is making for a very tough and slow read Those are two facts about my experience, I think they may be related but can t say for sure I really do want to read this book since I ve heard so much praise for it, but it s turning into a major chore I have no doubts that the author has a brilliant mind, but I don t find her style very inviting in fact I d go far as to say that this has replaced Principles of Color Technology as the hardest to read bu [...]

One of the most important books of the 21st century Known as a competent feminist critical theorist she is also an excellent quantum physicist She reforms Bohr then offers a posthuman performativity that diffractively interferes with quantum mechanics yielding far reaching impacts upon poststructuralism and a profoundly authentic new materialism I highly recommend this book.If you love math and aren t afraid of following her formalisms you ll be amply rewarded with a new understanding of Bohr, t [...]

Barad presents an account of reality she calls agential realism While intuitively we understand this in pop explanations as point of view she radicalizes this account by extending it into the formal fields of post structural philosophy and quantum physics.Taking the writings of the great physicist Neil Bohr, Barad dehumanizes his writing by removing what Meillasoux calls Ptolomey s Revenge in which the sciences and philosophy take the human account of things to be the end point of justification [...]

The quantum physics are not the reason making this a difficult read, it is solely due to the absence of coherent arguments with no development of her exclusive hypothesis revoling around Agential Realism.She was able to get this literary entity past editorial staff which deserves kudos However, this book merely comprises of fashionable concoctions of feminist jargon that miraculously crop up with her main buzzword Agential Realism so often and so iteratively as a deux ex machina getting past a p [...]

I did not actually finish this book, but I read about 200 pages of it and that felt like enough to justify rating it Barad is really good and very exciting diffractive reading I am so here for that , but this book is WAYYY long and so ambitious it makes my head hurt just thinking about it It s like, a 500 page reimagining of every major concept in western philosophy, as articulated through the lens of quantum physics Yes Because why not I feel like this is what Liz Cullingford would somewhat dis [...]

Bringing together ontology, epstemology, and ethics, Barad starts with quantum physics and reaches for ways for us to consider our responsibility in intra actions with others and their coincident response ability with us Barad has to be included in any discussion of posthumanist new materialist feminist critical theory and should be a part of responsible, reflective science studies.

It took a great deal of effort to meet this book half way, but it was well worth it.

Feminist quantum physics Kinda went over my head along with Haraway s book Modest Witness but made a lot sense when our professor clarified it in my feminist theory class Basically deconstructs assumptions in quantum physics that dilineates matter meaning, subject object, etc.

This is a life changing book I ll never again perceive anything the way I did before reading Barad.

A little repetitive after the first 3 4 chapters, I wish she would ve taken her theory as far with feminist studies as she did with physics, but it was still useful and it has been taken up by various feminist scholars, supplementing her work I don t fault her for that She is pretty clear, but clarity does require a slow and careful reading It is very easy to get lost if you re not reading carefully, slowly, and intentionally.

everything is great, but SHE REPEATS HERSELF SO MUCH, IT S REALLY ANNOYING AND UNNECESSARY.

It s hard to overestimate the tremble of excitement that attended the publication of Karen Barad s Meeting The Universe Halfway when it first came out nearly ten years ago Here was the work of a physicist cum philosopher conversant in the high theory of post structuralism no less than the intricacies of quantum theory, a writer of exceptional clarity at home in the fields of feminist theory no less than the philosophy and practice of science A work, over, that promised to rethink and reconceptua [...]

Barad s ambitious endeavor is indicated in these lines I call my proposed ontoepistemological framework agential realism Importantly, agential realism rejects the notion of a correspondence relation between words and things and offers in its stead a causal explanation of how discursive practices are related to material phenomena It does so by shifting the focus from the nature of representations scientific and other to the nature of discursive practices including technoscientific ones , leaving [...]

Meeting the Universe Halfway is a complete account of quantum physics viewed from a diffractive perspective and with an agential realist focus in mind The background, historical and theoretical notions that this book is based on underline and structure the field s most important questions and Karen Barad analyzes and dissects them from an epistemological, ontological and ethical point of view Still, one critique to answer to is that although the author states that this book is understandable by [...]

Barad offers an interesting and stimulating perspective on the classical problem of ontology and subject object relations within philosophy Not being satisfied with either deconstructivism or the correlationism this yields a way to talk about how matter affects without succumbing to essentialisms.So far, she s managed to describe some of the insights of quantum physics in a relatively comprehendable manner and even made it relevant and exciting to relate to a general and social ontology Looking [...]

I had to return this ebook to because the formatting was so wonky entire chapters in italics, misplaced hyphens, terrible tables, etc Am now waiting on the paperback because this book seems extraordinary and Barad intelligently talks about so many of my enthusiasms theoretical physics, feminism, social theory, philosophy in a way that incorporates so many theories in a way that escapes the binary of ontology epistemology, theory praxis that bogs down so much academic writing.

Taking too much time for a self trained in physics like me But it s actually a good and very engaging book to read, especially for those interested in STS I ve read her article Meeting the Universe Halfway and found that it covers the main theme of this book and her agential realism as well I think it s very helpful to start from it.

I read some of this for a course last term plus a bit than that, but I haven t come close to finishing it I intend to return to it at some point s very important work, I think, but also very, very hard work to read, and it will be at least next fall before I can think about picking it up again

If you re a scientist, or someone with a scientific background, who wants to understand Feminism from a physicist feminist, this is the book for you Barad uses scientific ideas to clarify important axioms in social science and feminism The opening section of the book is especially interesting for those of the quantum physics persuasion

Yes, it is mind boggling and YES it has great implications for epistemology and ontology in any subject area Absolutely worth reading.Though I do agree that she is a bit too repeatetive and leaves some very important questions still open and undefined.

worth the slow close read barad weaves physics into a new ontology.

Going back and forth between writing my thesis and then reading Karen Barad is like Imagining I am an ocean, and then seeing the ocean and realizing I am a little tide pool She is brilliant.

beautiful strenuous.

Feminist propaganda mixed with possible misextrapolations from physics sounds worse than water torture, but this book comes highly recommended from John Kowalko, so I may give it a chance.

Agential realism is the way of the future And the present.

Earth shattering A new paradigm Am trying to absorb.
