    schema:description ""But the book is also much more than this, as it uses the exploration of sexual difference as a means to challenge the system of binary logic which has pervaded Western thought since Aristotle. It develops the idea of a fluid logic which can move beyond oppositions to multiple subjects and creativity of thought and action. While challenging Irigaray's refusal to move beyond sexual difference, the book shows how her representation of sexual difference enables appreciation of difference of all kinds."--Jacket."@en ;
