Luce Irigaray : teaching by Mary Green( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luce Irigaray: Teaching explores ways to confront new issues in education. Three essays by Irigaray herself present the outcomes of her own experiments in this area and develop proposals for teaching people how to coexist in difference, reach self-affection, and rethink the relations between teachers and students. In the last few years, Irigaray has brought together young academics from various countries, universities and disciplines, all of whom were carrying out research into her work. These research students have received personal instruction from Irigaray and at the same time have learnt from one another by sharing with the group their own knowledge and experience. Most of the essays in this book are the result of this dynamic way of learning that fosters rigour in thinking as well as mutual respect for differences. The central themes of the volume focus on five cultural fields: methods of recovery from traumatic personal or cultural experience; the resources that arts offer for dwelling in oneself and with the other(s); the maternal order and feminine genealogy; creative interpretation and embodiment of the divine; and new perspectives in philosophy. This innovative collaborative project between Irigaray and researchers involved in the study of her work gives a unique insight into the topics that have occupied this influential international theorist over the last thirty years
Speculum of the other woman by Luce Irigaray( Book )

63 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La sexualidad femenina ha sido y continua siendo el "recipiente negro" del psicoanálisis. Éste, en efecto, no podía sino ignorar a esa otra, la mujer, que desborda los límites de su campo teórico, ciencia que define al "sujeto" sin haber examinado su sumisión a imperativos lógicos masculinos. Sería necesario, pues, recorrer de nuevo los textos en los que esta lógica del uno, del mismo, se sistematiza como tal. Releer, y reinterpretar, a Platón para observar cómo se determinan en él las metáforas que vehicularán de ahora en adelante el sentido. Seguir el desarrollo de esta historia, de la teoría, y re-marcar dónde y cómo la otra -la mujer- se encuentra excluida de la producción del discurso asegurando con su plasticidad silenciosa el terreno, el nuevo impulso y el límite. Esta es, sin duda, la tesis central de Speculum; libro en donde la psicoanalista Luce Irigaray desarrolla una lúcida crítica de la teoría de Freud sobre la sexualidad femenina y en el que plantea y subraya la importancia del autoerotismo femenino y el lesbianismo

Democracy begins between two by Luce Irigaray( )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Democracy Begins Between Two, Luce Irigaray calls for a radical reconsideration of the relation between sex and democracy. In order to look on ourselves as fully democratic, she argues, we must first grant full recognition to both genders, male and female, that contribute to the functioning of society. This recognition must take the form of specific civil rights guaranteeing women a separate civil identity of their own equivalent to--though not simply the same as--that enjoyed by men
Between East and West : from singularity to community by Luce Irigaray( )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Leading Philosopher steeped in the Western tradition explores ancient Eastern disciplines, meditating on what it means to learn to breathe: the result is a powerful challenge to discover the relevance of indigenous Asian philosophy to our lives. According to Luce Irigaray, yogic tradition can provide a vital link between the present and eternity, allowing us to reexamine and reenvision the patriarchal traditions of the West. Lacking personal experience with yoga or other Eastern spiritual practices, the Western philosophers who have tried to address Hindu and Buddhist teachings -- particularly Schopenhauer -- have frequently gone astray. Incorporating her personal experience with yoga into her provocative philosophical thinking on sexual difference, Luce Irigaray proposes a new way of understanding individuation and community in the contemporary world. By returning to fundamental human experiences -- breathing and the fact of sexual difference -- she finds a way out of the endless sociologizing abstractions of much contemporary thought to rethink questions of race, ethnicity, and globalization.

To speak is never neutral by Luce Irigaray( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in English and French and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Feminist philosopher, linguist, and psychoanalyst Luce Irigaray is renowned for her analyses of language, studies that can be precise and poetic at the same time. In this volume of her work on language, linguistics, and psychoanalysis, she is concerned with developing a model that can reveal those unconscious or pre-conscious structures that determine speech. A key element of her method is the comparison of spoken and written language, through which she teases out the sexual and social configurations of speech."

I love to you : sketch for a felicity within history by Luce Irigaray( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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? Drawing upon Hegel, Irigaray proposes a dialectic appropriate to each sex as well as a dialectic of their relation. She argues for what she calls "sexed rights" and a right of persons based on the right to life, not the right to property. Using the results of her research into the sexing of language, Irigaray analyzes how women seek communication in discourse with the other--an other, pre-occupied with his abstract or concrete object, who does not respond. She proposes another syntax for communication, one that does not incorporate the other as the object of the subject but allows for an indirect relation. Thus "I love to you" replaces "I love you." In Irigaray's vision of the happiness possible in sexual difference, the love between a man and a woman finds its "reason" not in property or children, but in its own place within the couple. Arguing passionately for a new language of personal relations, I Love to You looks toward a future where nihilism can be overcome by "love in sexual difference."

To be two by Luce Irigaray( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new work, French philosopher Luce Irigaray continues to explore the issue central to her thought: the feminist redefinition of Being and Identity. For Irigaray, the notion of the individual is twinned with a reconceived notion of difference, or alterity. What does it mean to be someone? How can identity be created, or discovered, in relation to others?" "In To Be Two Irigaray gives new clarity to her project, grounding it in relation to such major figures as Sartre, Levinas, and Merleau-Ponty. Yet at the same time, she enriches her discussion with an attempt to bring the elements - earth, fire, water - into philosophical discourse. Even the polarities of heaven and earth come to play in this ambitious and provocative text. At once political, philosophical, and poetic, To Be Two will become one of Irigaray's central works."--Jacket
The way of love by Luce Irigaray( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Way of Love asks the question: How can we love each other? Here Luce Irigaray, one of the world's foremost philosophers, presents an extraordinary exploration of desire and the human heart. If Western philosophy has claimed to be a love of wisdom, it has forgotten to become a wisdom of love. We still lack words, gestures, ways of doing or thinking to approach one another as humans, to enter into dialogue, to build a world where we can live together

Sharing the world by Luce Irigaray( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this age of multiculturalism, and after Nietzsche's criticism of our traditional values and Heidegger's deconstruction of our interpretation of truth, Irigaray, as a woman, questions the validity of the 'sameness' that lies at the root of Western culture. Advancing the work undertaken in The Way of Love, she proposes new ways to meet and coexist with the other as other, from the most intimate level to the most globe and universal level."--Jacket
