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?
French philosopher Luce Irigaray is one of the foremost contemporary scholars in the fields of feminist thought and linguistics. Her books Thinking the Difference, Je, Tu, Nous, and Elemental Passions are available from Routledge.
"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
