The return to Marx: the problem of the foundation of embodied materialism

Keywords: environmental crisis; ecofeminism; Marxism; embodied materialism; female work

Abstract

This article analyzes the foundations of the embodied materialism present in Ariel Salleh, as a response to the ecofeminist debate on the role of women in their relationship with nature. The difference between this materialism and Marx's ecological materialism is examined, and the benefits of a position that seeks the reconciliation of embodied materialism with Marxian foundations, in order to recover the conceptual richness that its incorporation into the debates of Marxist ecofeminism means.
