Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Scholars of literature, philosophy, and social sciences explore Belgian feminist Irigaray's links to classical literature. Their topics include thinking difference as different thinking in her deconstructive genealogies, veils as textiles that matter, Irigaray and the female genealogical line in the stories of the Greeks, Antigone and the ethics of kinship, hospitality and sexual difference in Homer, her challenge to the fetishistic hegemony of the Platonic one and many, and uses and misuses of tradition in the articulation of difference and plurality. Irigaray herself contributes the essay The Return, which was written for a 2004 conference and appeared in a 2008 collection of her work. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
