In this major new work, French philosopher Luce Irigaray continues to explore the issue central to her thought: the feminist redefinition of Being and Identity. For Irigaray, the notion of the individual is twinned with a reconceived notion of difference, or alterity. What does it mean to be someone? How can identity be created, or discovered, in relation to others? In To Be Two Irigaray gives new clarity to her project, grounding it in relation to such major figures as Sartre, Levinas, and Merleau-Ponty. Yet at the same time, she enriches her discussion with an attempt to bring out the elements - earth, fire, water - into philosophical discourse. Even the polarities of heaven and earth come to play in this ambitious and provocative text. At once political, philosophical and poetic, To Be Two will become one of Irigaray's central works. Luce Irigaray is Director of Research in Philosophy at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. Translators: Monique Rhodes and marco Cocito-Monoc

Prologue; the wedding between the body and language; daughter and woman; to perceive the invisible in you; the love to the point of safeguarding you; I announce to you that we are different; to conceive silence; between us, a fabricated world; she before the king; each transcendant to the other; how can I touch you if you are not there?; a mystery which illuminates.
