Afterword — Cultivating Natural Belonging: Luce Irigaray’s Water Lily

  • Michael Marder
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Postmetaphysical Thought book series (PSPMT)

Having thrown off the straight-jackets of metaphysical reasoning, living thought turns towards corporeity stamped by finitude and sexual difference, to the world around us, to the rhythms of the earth, and to a wealth of non-Western philosophical traditions.
