Feminist Philosophy and the Philosophy of Feminism: Irigaray and the History of Western Metaphysics

Hypatia 12 (1):79 - 98 (1997)
Abstract
Irigaray demonstrates that metaphysics depends upon the specific negation and exclusion of the female body. Readings of Irigaray's Speculum of the Other Woman tend to highlight the status of this excluded materiality: is there an essential female body which precedes negation or is the feminine only an effect of exclusion? I approach Irigaray's work by way of another question: is it possible to move beyond a feminist critique of metaphysics and towards a feminist philosophy?
