Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"In this deeply original, provocative book, outrage, hilarity, grief, profanity, lyricism and moral daring join in bursting the accustomed bounds even of feminist discourse." —The New York Times Book Review

"Daly's insights into the background of radical feminism…are brilliant, and her synthesis of theology, mythology, philosophy, history, and medicine is absolutely overwhelming." —Library Journal

"Gyn/Ecology is a great leap forward in feminist theory…It defies simplistic categorizations of political theory, philosophy of religion, or even poetry. The book is all of these yet none, because it goes beyond them." —Janice Raymond, New Women's Times Feminist Review

"A vivid and exciting work, destined to become of landmark in the radical feminist process." —Chrysalis

"Brilliant and soaring, Mary Daly's Gyn/Ecology is the most amazing book I've ever read. It set me spinning. A wonderfully dangerous book." —Gena Corea

"Daly writes with deep healing anger and uncompromising vision. Her book gives a shock of awakening such as is found in the works of Simone de Beauvoir." —Publishers Weekly --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

This revised edition includes a New Intergalactic Introduction by the Author.

Mary Daly's New Intergalactic Introduction explores her process as a Crafty Pirate on the Journey of Writing Gyn/Ecology and reveals the autobiographical context of this "Thunderbolt of Rage" that she first hurled against the patriarchs in 1979 and no hurls again in the Re-Surging Movement of Radical Feminism in the Be-Dazzling Nineties. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Le livre qui explicite la pensée de Mary Daly ! "Les femmes ont été exclues du Cosmos par le Patriarcat, religion de la planète, on le leur a rendu sous la forme de Cosmopolitan et des cosmétiques" ! Culte.

HASH(0x932351ec) étoiles sur 5 I don't hate myself and I admire this book 20 septembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm a man, which I think matters on this topic. I read this book when it was originally published back in the 80's, and it blew me away. I do not believe that Mary hates men. She certainly hates the world that men have built. Her analysis of the language men have constructed to understand that world is absolutely brilliant---you have to consider that she has, other than that tendentious language itself, no other tool with which to describe the language's inherent violence. We live entirely within a media-constructed world that is loaded with value, very much angled to exclude and diminish (to put it mildly) women, people of color, non-heteros, non-academic thinkers, etc. The shock some people experience on reading this work is basically caused by Mary's unwavering determination to hold even the most mundane and seemingly value-free details of this constructed world up to her merciless view.

HASH(0x93235654) étoiles sur 5 Naming the violence. 28 juillet 2000
Par Cathleen M. Walker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Goddess, I love this book! Hateful? Racist? I think not. Angry? Unladylike? Absolutely! Mary Daly begins by challenging language which keeps us oppressed as women. It was the work of women that gave a name to the experiences so many of us share, but could not speak at one time: rape, battering, incest. There were no words, once, for what was considered, "a woman's lot in life." These things still happen, but at least now they can be spoken, at least now they can be challenged, at least now there may be hope. The title 'Gyn/Ecology,' according to the Introduction, is a way of wrenching back some wordpower. It is men, after all, who up until now have always had the power of naming, often naming something the opposite of what it really is (i.e. Military Intelligence, Peacekeeper, sanitary napkin). This book is primarily concerned with the mind/spirit/body pollution inflicted through patriarchal myth and language on all levels.
The fact that most gynecologists are males, says Daly, is in itself a collosal comment on our society. It is a symptom and example of male control over women and over language, and a clue to the extent of this control. Add to this the fact that self-appointed soul doctors, mind doctors, and body doctors who "specialize" in women are perpetrators of iatrogenic disease (the first time I had ever heard of such a thing, and have since come to specialize in its research).
"The courage to be logical -- the courage to name -- would require that we admit to ourselves that males and males only are the originators, planners, controllers, and legitimators of patriarchy. Patriarchy is the homeland of males; it is Father Land; and men are its agents. It is in the interest of men (as men in patriarchy perceive their interest) and in a superficial but Self-destructive way, of many women, to hide this fact, especially from themselves."
How anyone can call Dr. Daly racist for dis-covering the historical roots of American Gynecology balanced on the backs of experimentation on black female slaves by J. Marion Sims, "moving spirit" behind the founding of the Women's Hospital in New York, is beyond me.
Dr. Daly weaves her understanding of our oppression as women within and around her understanding of Chinese footbinding, Indian Suttee, clitoridectomy, and the witchburnings in the Middle Ages. Violence against women continues to be endemic, systemic, entrenched in our society, and its roots grow deep. Dr. Daly dis-covers and names those roots, and for many, this is a painful exercise that requires the work of thinking, something that is more and more dis-couraged in a society that prefers to do your thinking for you.
From the back cover: "Mary Daly is a Revolting Hag who holds doctorates in theology and philosophy from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. An associate professor of theology at Boston College, this Spinster spins and weaves cosmic tapestries in her own time/space. She is the author of 'Beyond God the Father' and 'The Church and the Second Sex.'"
Dr. Daly is intelligent, a delight to read, and has earned her stripes. Her willingness to speak truth to power has cost her dearly, and has earned my respect. The violence she is not afraid to name threatens the very existence of life on this planet. If you want to be part of making a difference, read this book.

HASH(0x93235678) étoiles sur 5 The radical feminist manifesto 4 février 2001
Par Andrew Gibbs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a man who has met and spoken at length to Mary Daly, I can definitively say that she does not hate men (as this seems to be the topic of discussion in these reviews). Her anger in this book is valid and purposeful. The anger is present to energize people for change. The statement that this book is racist seems incredible to me. The cultural realativist "trump card" of tradition cannot be extended to practices that directly harm people. Condemming genital mutilation and footbinding on the same grounds as the American medical establisment (the grounds that they cripple, kill and disable women) seems less racist than assuming these practices are "primitive" and thereby sacred. Daly is not an imperialist, she speaks for the unification of women (and those men willing) across all superficial borders to break the bonds of patriarchy. This is an angry book, but is enjoyable and, at times astounding, nonetheless. Daly is disgusted by the patriarchal world that has been created by men and with the complicity of women, but you should be too. Things don't seem so bad here in the US (if you are happy with $.75 to the dollar), but the picture overseas is entirely different. Across all cultures (yes even our own) rape and spousal abuse are incredibly prevelant, affecting up to 85% of women in some countries. Feminism is as needed now as it ever was, and the assumption that it only applies to "developed" cultures allows governments to block and qualify international legislation such as the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women. This book is a direct challenge to this cultural realativism.

HASH(0x9323599c) étoiles sur 5 Brilliant 17 septembre 2011
Par J. Fiore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Anyone who gave this book a low rating either didn't understand it or was threatened by it. Mary Daly was one of the most brilliant philosophers to live, and certainly the most brilliant feminist philosopher. Her analysis is so clear, so deep, that once you start unraveling the delusion that is contemporary patriarchal capitalist experience, there's no coming back. This book, more than any other, changed my life and set me on a new course. It's certainly not an easier path but it's far more authentic. Seeing the delusion of the modern world for what it is enables one--man or woman--to resist and live according to more life-affirming values. If you want to wake up and unplug from the nightmare, read this book. I thank Mary Daly every day of my life for it.

HASH(0x93235ac8) étoiles sur 5 Needed Now More Than Ever 12 mars 2007
Par Judith Price - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I first read Mary Daly;s works in the early 90's - I revisit regularly to maintain the perspective, so that I will not be sucked into the manufacture of consent for such belitteling and anti-woman activities such as "Hunting for Bambi" or believe that female genital mutilation is a "tradition" that must be preserved. If you care about the future - this book is an intellectual and spiritual watershed. Highly Reccommended.
