Davidson, Joyce and Smith, Mick (1999) Wittgenstein and Irigaray : gender and philosophy in a language (game) of difference. Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, 14 (2). pp. 72-96. ISSN 0887-5367Full text not available from this repository.
Drawing Wittgenstein's and Irigaray's philosophies into conversation might help resolve certain misunderstandings that have so far hampered both the reception of Irigaray's work and the development of feminist praxis in general. A Wittgensteinian reading of Irigaray can furnish an anti-essentialist conception of “woman” that retains the theoretical and political specificity feminism requires while dispelling charges that Irigaray's attempt to delineate a “feminine” language is either groundlessly utopian or entails a biological essentialism.
