About this book

The book argues that a universally widespread virility currently prevents humans from realizing their sexualities, which are originally the feminine and the masculine. This obstacle may be traced back to Renaissance humanism, whose core intention is to take control over the so-called 'nature."

His main researches concern political philosophy and genders. His book entitled La sagesse et le feminin (Wisdom and Femininity) will soon be published in Japan.

Reviews

"With daring vulnerability and scope, Laurent Bibard opens us to the sex of our time, to our kind of time in which we incessantly seek to master nature, each other and ourselves. This sex has a religious history. We must step back from our de-sexed modernity into the possibility of recuperating the contradictory duality of masculinity and femininity that constitute us all. Only thus can we reveal our humanness and create a more habitable world." - Roger Friedland, Visiting Professor, Media, Culture and Communication, New York University, USA

"Given the way it discusses sexuality as a core issue of civilization, modernity and globalization, Sexuality and Globalization is a stimulating read. Revisiting the relations between yin and yang, feminine and masculine, Laurent Bibard offers an innovative breakthrough in understanding the role of sexes in human history." - Edgar Morin, Sociologist and Philosopher of Emeritus Director of Research at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France
