How does male dominance shape desire? This question has always informed feminism. Yet the focus has been on sexual desire. Are there other considerations? And if so, how do they intersect with each other? Last year, I wrote an essay for The Philosopher’s Summer issue, which explores the entangled relationship between desire and patriarchal thought. The essay is now available to read online.
The artwork by Samira Abbassy is enchanting and corresponds really well with the text.
