ABSTRACT

Are Drucilla Cornell's goals of protecting “minimum conditions for individuation” by orienting feminist theory around a notion of personhood equipped with an “imaginary domain” best served by her theoretical reliance on Kant and Rawls? This essay takes up threads from recent debates over “recognition” as a liberal political ideal and contrasts Cornell's Rawlsian version of the imaginary domain with the way this concept might work to women's benefit if it were reconceived along Deleuzian lines.
