Abstract

Book description: Dialogue is a privileged method in Luce Irigaray’s work. Covering all the key topics that have been central to her work in the last thirty years, this book offers an essential insight into Irigaray’s career as one of the world’s most important contemporary thinkers. Topics and theorists approached include: philosophy, in particular Hegel, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze; language as information, communication-between and artistic expression; universality and difference; natural and cultural identities; motherhood and gendered subjectivities; cultivation of desire and love; building houses and sharing lives; being two and being in community; the other and others; relational identity and education; globalisation and ethics; politics and human rights; spirituality and religion; practice and culture of Yoga; and, of course, being and becoming woman. Ideal for students seeking an overview of Irigaray’s thought, as well as those already familiar with her work, this collection brings together for the first time Irigaray’s conversations over the years with the people who have been involved in studying and researching her enormous contribution to Continental Philosophy, Spirituality, Cultural Theory and Feminism.
