Iris van der Tuin redirects the notion of generational logic in feminism away from its simplistic conception as conflict. Generational logic is said to problematize feminist theory and gender research as it follows a logic of divide and conquer between the old and the young and participates in patriarchal structures and phallologocentrism. Examining the continental philosophies of Bergson and Deleuze and French feminisms of sexual difference, van der Tuin paves the way for a more complex notion of generationality. This new conception of the term views generational cohorts as static measurements that happen in the flow of being. Prioritizing this generative flow gives what is measured its proper place as an effect. Generational Feminism: New Materialist Introduction to a Generative Approach experiments with a previously disregarded methodology's implications as an impetus for a new materialism and advances feminist politics for the twenty-first century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dutch feminist epistemologist Iris van der Tuin's latest book Generational feminism: New materialist introduction to a generative approach (2015) is a captivating philosophical work that offers its readers a much-needed and innovative epistemological breakdown of the longstanding and over-accentuated Oedipalised generational conflicts within (and between) the traditions of academic and activist feminism. * Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies *
Generational Feminism is a highly original, creative and theoretically-informed contribution to a persistent and important topic within feminism: the ways in which contemporary feminists relate to our foremothers as well as others yet to come. Opening up the term "generations" to embrace both of its meanings- "generational cohorts" and "generating" - and developing a new figuration of "jumping generations," van der Tuin pushes the discussion provocatively in new directions. Crossing deliberately between epistemological and ontological registers, this book brings insights of neo-materialism to bear on questions of generational classifications, illuminating new paths for thinking about affirmative ways of relating to one another. -- Iveta Jusova, Antioch University
Generational Feminism challenges us to reconsider what we thought we knew about Twentieth-Century feminist work and the future of feminism. Iris van der Tuin provides the first map and theory of generational interactive theoretical feminist work. Driven by her innovative and original expression concerning the new materialist lens of reimagining the feminist project, van der Tuin expertly guides her reader through the technicalities of theory, enabling us to rethink and to reimagine ways to conceive of the generative movement of feminisms. -- Felicity J. Colman, Professor of Film and Media Arts, Manchester Metropolitan University
Generational Feminism is a tour de force of contemporary feminist theorizing. Building on generations of feminist epistemology, Iris van der Tuin delivers this original series of transversal takes and conceptual innovations that warp time, space and mattering. Her impressive scope, rigorous analytics, and teaching-friendly theory guide the reader to an extensive appreciation of feminist philosophy at its finest. A significant contribution to the liveliest of fields, Generational Feminism exhibits the endlessly regenerative quality of feminist thought today. A must-read for students and teachers of gender studies, new materialism, philosophy of science, and interdisciplinary humanities. -- Cecilia Asberg, Linkoeping University
