With an introduction by Luce Irigaray, and original essays from students and collaborators, this book explores the key ideas from Irigaray's most recent book, To Be Born. Many of the essays were originally presented at a series of workshops and conferences where Irigaray developed the ideas that eventually evolved into To Be Born. The essays engage the author directly and in many instances have been developed in dialogue with Irigaray. Similar to earlier books that focus on previous work by the author, Towards a New Human Being is part of a long-term project that involves Irigaray working together with other academics in conferences, workshops and colloquia. This book includes contributions from doctoral candidates specializing in Irigaray's philosophy, as well as early career researchers and more established academic figures. The range and breadth of topics and themes covered testifies to the continuing relevance, vibrancy and profundity of Luce Irigaray's thought.
