Continental Feminism: Reclaiming the Dark Continent

Abstract [en]

Quite like Freud, who proclaimed that “The sexual life of adult women is a ‘dark continent’ for psychology” (1926, 212), one could argue that both women’s experience and very existence have been considered a “dark continent” for philosophy. And further, one could claim that continental philosophy itself, oft characterized as obscure and opaque, is also philosophy’s dark continent. Playing with this metaphor, we can thus read a double sense into the term “continental feminism”: on the one hand, we can address the question of continental feminism straightforwardly by examining continental philosophy and the various feminist mediations of it, and on the other we can think about the ways that continental feminism might be in a sense tautological – feminism of the (dark) continent.
