Description

In this book, one of the foremost contemporary scholars in the fields of feminist thought and linguistics, explores the possibility of a new liberating language and hence a new relationship between the sexes. In I Love to You, Luce Irigaray moves from the critique of patriarchy to an exploration of the ground for a possible inter-subjectivity between the two sexes. Continuing her rejection of demands for equality, Irigaray poses the question: how can we move to a new era of sexual difference in which women and men establish lasting relations with one another without reducing the other to the status of object?

Reviews

"I have found I Love To You to be a rewarding and refreshing work… Irigaray's voice bears a welcome sense of warmth and engagement supported by the weight of her impressive scholarship and committed philosophical search." -- Journal of Religion and Culture
