Cultivating Difference with Luce Irigaray’s Between East and West

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A recent criticism of the philosophy of sexuate difference contends that this philosophy is unable to accommodate lived differences between women. I suggest that rather than being indifferent or hostile to differences between women, Luce Irigaray’s philosophy is actually offering a more radical proposal.
