About this book

With an original introduction by Luce Irigaray, and original texts from her students and collaborators, this book imagines the outlines of a more just, ecologically attuned world that flourishes on the basis of sexuate difference.

Reviews

'Now, perhaps only the fact of thinking can still rescue humanity, our planet and all living beings - thinking as an act that concerns the whole being, and especially the heart, the organ that can join together the corporeal part to the spiritual part of our human being, and allow the old man of our Western tradition to attain a new humanity.'

- Luce Irigaray

'Having thrown off the straightjackets of metaphysical reasoning, living thought turns toward corporeity stamped by finitude and sexual difference, to the world around us, to the rhythms of the earth, and to a wealth of non-Western philosophical traditions. The work of Luce Irigaray is open to, and rooted in, all of these dimensions of experience, which it has been able to regain at the dusk of metaphysics.'

- Michael Marder
