Embodied Humanism: Performative Argument for Natural Rights in "The Solitude of Self."
Stormer, Nathan
Argumentation and Advocacy, v36 n2 p51-64 Fall 1999
Discusses how Elizabeth Cady Stanton's "The Solitude of Self" grounds rights in the material paradox of chance life events and the corporeal permanence of human isolation by enacting human solitude through what J. Campbell calls lyric tragedy. Reverses the ground for humanism from the disembodied rationalism of the Enlightenment to an embodied materialism that anchors individuality in lived, isolated mortality. (SC)
