By Lynne Huffer
Lynne Huffer's formidable inquiry redresses the rift among feminist and queer concept, traversing the distance of a brand new, post-moral sexual ethics that incorporates excitement, hope, connection, and betrayal. She starts by way of balancing queer theorists' politics of sexual freedoms with a moralizing feminist politics that perspectives sexuality as damage. Drawing at the top insights from either traditions, she builds an ethics headquartered on eros, following Michel Foucault's ethics as a convention of freedom and Luce Irigaray's lyrical articulation of an ethics of sexual difference.
Through this theoretical lens, Huffer examines daily reports of moral connection and failure attached to intercourse, together with queer sexual practices, sodomy legislation, interracial love, pornography, and work-life stability. Her technique complicates sexual identities whereas demanding the epistemological foundations of subjectivity. She rethinks ethics "beyond strong and evil" with out underestimating, as a few queer theorists have performed, the endurance of what Foucault calls the "catastrophe" of morality. Elaborating a thinking-feeling ethics of the opposite, Huffer encourages modern intellectuals to reshape sexual morality from inside of, defining a moral area that's either poetically suggestive and politically proper, either conceptually bold and level-headed in universal sexual experience.
