Forcefully subverting or reinforcing dichotomies? Elizabeth Grosz‟s feminist rereading of Charles Darwin, via the perspectives of Jacques Derrida and Luce Irigaray.
In this paper, I evaluate Elizabeth Grosz's corporeal feminism and ontology of sexual difference(s), by moving through her Derridean and Irigarayian conceptual heritage. The question here is asked whether Grosz succeeds at deconstructing feminism's enemy; biological determinism, and if she deconstructs binary dichotomizes or in the end reinforces them. Grosz's Darwinian ontology of sexual differences is then analyzed via these two leading motives, and through the perspectives of Derrida and Irigaray.
