Luce Irigaray has sought to expose the dangers that are inherent in the modern western relationship to the Earth and to Nature. Resulting from relationships based on appropriation, extraction, and exploitation, these are dangers for shared community existence, dangers for the future of the planet, and dangers for the very survival of the human species (Irigaray 2000: 49–50). She has always maintained that vis-à-vis Nature and Being we are handicapped by oblivion and by blindness, or our utter inability to see that both Nature and Being are at least Two, and that their continuing existence is predicated on the flourishing of difference and diversity, and ultimately on the endless invention and creativity of sexual difference. Irigaray has unceasingly sounded the warning of the perils of the One. Her entire oeuvre is in many ways an extended deconstruction of the One, universal, gender-, race-, ethnic-, and generation-neutral Truth; of unilateral, univocal, and unisexuate social institutions and structures; and of reasoning based on minimal, discrete, countable, interchangeable units of one + one + one. What follows is an attempt to show that the hegemony of the One and of the one + one + one permeates not only our western modes of thought from philosophy to science to economics, but also our most concrete and empirical economies, such as food production, and our most personal and intimate activities, such as eating.
