  1. Fractured Community.Linnell Secomb - 2000 - Hypatia 15 (2):133-150.
    : Unity, commonality, and agreement are generally understood to be the basis, or the aim, of community. This paper argues instead that disagreement and fracture are inherent to, and provide the expression of difference within, community. Drawing on the experience of race relations in Australia, this paper proposes that ongoing resis-tance and disagreement by Aboriginal groups against non-Aboriginal law and culture has enabled an unworking of homogenizing and totalizing forces which destroy alterity within community.

    Philosophy and Love: From Plato to Popular Culture.Linnell Secomb - 2007 - Indiana University Press.
    Philosophy and Love introduces readers to philosophical reflections on love from Plato to the present. Bringing philosophy together with popular cultural analysis, Linnell Secomb provides an interesting and engaging account of theories of love throughout history. Along the way, reflections on same-sex desire, cross-cultural love, and internet romance are considered against the ideas of Nietzsche, Beauvoir, Irigaray, Derrida, and Fanon, and other contemporary cultural commentators on the human condition. The work also looks at cultural productions of love ranging from Sappho (...)

    Hybrid Freedoms.Linnell Secomb - 2003 - Studies in Practical Philosophy 3 (1):118-136.
    In his essay 'Unpacking My Library... Again,' Homi Bhabha suggests that the liberal ideal of toleration has been challenged by colonial and postcolonial interactions and exchanges. Bhabha suggests that just as the ideal of equality has been problematized by the operation of gender and class difference, so too cultural and racial difference has exposed the contradictions inherent within the concept and the practice of toleration. This paper elaborates the critiques of toleration and recognition. It suggests that toleration is not a (...)

    Beauvoir’s Minoritarian Philosophy.Linnell Secomb - 1999 - Hypatia 14 (4):96-113.
    : Drawing on Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's elaborations of the project of philosophy and styles of minoritarian literature, it becomes possible to reveal new dimensions in Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex. In this work she uses a minoritarian philosophy, which is an accessible and collaborative mode of philosophizing, to create a concept of Woman as an incarnate-becoming. This concept overcomes the dichotomizing of transcendence and immanence, and revalues feminine existence within philosophical discourses.

    Derrida’s Other Ends of Man.Linnell Secomb - unknown
    In ‘Force of law’ Derrida appears to suggest that emancipatory ideals and human rights have a continuing relevance. This may seem a surprising proposition from a theorist often interpreted as critical of humanist and Enlightenment principles. This paper argues, however, that Derrida does not reject, outright, humanist, Enlightenment and emancipatory strategies but instead deconstructs these in order to propose alternate ‘ethical’ and ‘political’ possibilities. Focusing on ‘The ends of man’, ‘Force of law’ and ‘Autoimmunity’ this paper argues that Derrida does (...)
