It is of course obvious that our scientific knowledge on matters of the body has been imagined by those allowed to participate in the production of this dominant discourse. If feminists are to join in and participate in the production of a 'new history' of biological knowledge, then they must think beyond the dominant imagination. In the words of Hélène Cixous, 'the future must no longer be determined by the past' (1981, 245). This does not mean that we must dispose of all biological knowledge of the body or question the existence of molecules and organs. It does mean however that the biology of these matters needs to be examined and (re)materialized through feminist analyses. So, in this sense it can be argued that the body to which feminists are attempting to return has yet to exist. But I believe that there are some matters of the biological body that feminists never left behind in the first place. It may therefore be beneficial to start our journey back to a new biology by returning to the point of our apparent departure from the body.
