This paper addresses the question of sexual difference as a pre-eminent question not only of cultural and social but also of biological relations. If sexual difference is a biological force then it must pervade the world of animals as much as the cultural world of humans. Charles Darwin’s work may provide a framework from which to understand Luce Irigaray’s central conception of sexual difference. This paper explores the possible relations between them.
