Both sides in controversies tend to argue they have logic on their side. This book proposes that the interminable nature of these controversies suggests there is a problem with the main tool of logic, the syllogism. An alternative mode of judgment is needed. Drawing on contemporary and classic sources in social theory and philosophy, Stanley raffle argues that metaphors are not just aesthetic tools; they can be used to judgeonstruction of gender from the nineteenth century to the present. Authors analyze literary and cinematic texts, as well as contemporary popular songs, and offer a wide-ranging picture of the performance of masculinity as it has evolved and adapted since the consolidation of Argentina as a modern nation. This captivating interdisciplinary volume sheds new light on the construction of heterosexual and queer Argentine masculinities.
