Contesting the Oedipal Legacy: Deleuzean Vs Psychoanalytic Feminist Critical Theory
Psychoanalytic feminism is stuck in the 'feminist dilemma': it seems to constantly reiterate the constitutive binarism of the gender war. This book suggests we turn to a Deleuzean feminism and methodology in order to be able to describe the sexes beyond the binary. Deleuze's becoming-woman is based on an ontology of desire which refutes the Lacanian 'tyranny of the past' that dictates a constitutive lack at the base of the subject which has its origin in the (m)other. Through Deleuzean readings of cultural texts its potential to describe new gender identities, or non-identities, will be shown.
