Pure Lust: Elemental Feminist Philosophy

by Mary Daly - £10.99  The Women (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780704339354 | ISBN 10: 0704339358

Mary Daly is one of the most exhilarating and imaginative feminist thinkers of our time. She is also a raging Fury, a Nag-Hag, a Crone. In Pure Lust - which is the female lust for change, as opposed to Cockocracy, the Phallic State - she extends the 'deviant philosophy' developed in her classic Gyn/Ecology.
She refers to Websters' First Intergalactic Wickedary of the English Language in order to deconstruct/reconstruct our speech and expose the assumptions behind our thought processes. She unvoers the patriarchal reversals that have made us the inheritors of a belief system of the absurd, in which jesus is manifested as a male peudo-goddess and the Pope as a male Great Mother. She exhorts us to the Vourage to Sin, to break outof the guilt and fear in which the male sadosociety entraps us and to dis-cover the States of Natural Grace.
