Nearly thirty years after the first edition of Speculum, Irigaray’s present work can be read from a different position. According to it, the main political and civil concerns of the author are examined in their relation to a theory of sexual difference. A new insight can emerge, as one realizes that her own position is also made by Irigaray’s work. This produces new configurations between politics and theory, embodied experiences and relations and their formalization, in a move that is both a rooting in and a departure from Irigaray’s work.

Abstract

Nearly thirty years after the first edition of Speculum, Irigaray’s present work can be read from a different position. According to it, the main political and civil concerns of the author are examined in their relation to a theory of sexual difference. A new insight can emerge, as one realizes that her own position is also made by Irigaray’s work. This produces new configurations between politics and theory, embodied experiences and relations and their formalization, in a move that is both a rooting in and a departure from Irigaray’s work.
