A New Culture of Energy: Beyond East and West

by Luce Irigaray Author

An iconoclastic feminist philosopher takes up yoga and produces a series of interconnected ideas, captured here, about different religious traditions and the connections between our bodies, thoughts, and culture. What does transcendence mean, she wonders. What is the divine? How can we honor one tradition while existing fully in another. This is Luce Irigaray's most approachable, accessible, and autobiographical work and tie together a bunch of concepts that should be fascinating to fans of her work as well as anyone grappling with intercultural communication and questions of appropriation.
