Subject: Re: talking about Irigaray

thankyou Noelle

two or three initial questions:

1) are the "elements" earth & air meant literally or (in what way)

2) is not earth also abundant and the 'soil and root'  for all that
be-comes and stirs (into life)? Heidegger also privileges light and the
clearing afforded by lighting... what does Irigaray say about this
privilege? Is it on a par with earth and oblivious in the same way of air?

best wishes
