Agacinski, Luno, and Parity

The next series of posts is selected from Luno’s notes on reading Sylviane Agacinski’s Parity of the Sexes during the Summer of 2005. It is remarkable for him to express as much consonance with a contemporary thinker as occurs here. Luno seems to have come to many of the same conclusions by a very different path—one passing through Otto Weininger’s writing and one that Agacinski, herself, perhaps would barely recognize (though both she and Luno have some common philosophical heritage in Kierkegaard). Luno, isolatedly critical, seems to delight in finding synchronicities, the more improbable the better.

The notes consist of quotations, paraphrasings, and commentary/asides—the latter usually in blue and [brackets].
