The Way of Love by Luce Irigaray


The Way of Love by Luce Irigaray

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.


'Irigaray's work is always dazzling, surprising and unexpected. No other thinker of Irigaray's generation has her range, insight and originality. No other thinker has managed to illuminate the challenge and the mystery that the other, the other of sexual difference, brings to all encounters, and to all knowledges. In The Way of Love Irigaray opens up philosophy to the mystery of sexual difference, a mystery inscribed in but covered over in all of Western thought.'
Elizabeth Grosz
