"The book is eloquent, well researched, and written by one of the sharpest feminist philosophers and brightest academic thinkers on the UK scene. It should in fact establish itself as a model for introductory philosophical texts. This is absolutely first-rate work – philosophy at its best."Tina Chanter, DePaul University
"Rachel Jones provides an excellent introduction to Irigaray's thought which will benefit feminist philosophers and theorists as well as students. Jones gives a lucid and original account of central themes in Irigaray's work, such as the relation between matter and form, the nature of sexual difference, and the idea of a female subject position."
Alison Stone, Lancaster University
"This valuable and accessible book meets an urgent need for all those who have wrestled with the intricacies of Luce Irigaray's prose - or who have found the most important of her writings, Speculum of the Other Woman, simply too baffling. Written in an admirably clear style, Rachel Jones's book breaks new ground in showing why and how Irigaray's 'fling with the philosophers' still matters today."
Christine Battersby, University of Warwick
"This is an astonishing book in its depth and framing of Irigaray. It offers an important contribution to feminist
philosophy and has daring, bold, insightful claims that are not seen in other texts."
Breanne Fahs, Arizona State University
