Other Women synopsis
In this ambitious work, Anita Levy exposed certain forms of middle class power that Muslims considered "logical" and "laws of nature". To join a tradition of cultural historians who rely on Gramsci and Foucault, shows how middle-class hegemony in the 19th century relied on gender concepts to legitimize a specific definition of culture and the specific class of the right and wrong ways of being human.
The author examines not only the local novel, especially the Worms and Emily Breunt Heights, but also works of human sciences in the nineteenth century, including social tracts, anthropological treatises, medical texts, and psychological studies. She found that British intellectuals at that time had set gender norms that did not serve women to men as much as they allowed the social class whose women met "appropriate" rules of conduct: it was considered particularly appropriate to care for others.
Social and cultural groups where women were sexually "unfit". When Levy reads stories against social science, the history of fiction can not be understood in isolation from the history of the human sciences.
Imagination and science share common narrative strategies to represent the basic "women" and "other women" - the prostitute, the "primitive" and the crazy. Imagination alone, however, represents these strategies in the daily language of life that is achieved by "theory" and "science".
