This essay understands and reflects on Elizabeth Grosz’s latest work in terms of the passage from “the linguistic turn” to “the biopolitical turn” in twentieth-century thought. In particular, this essay asks what it means to want to hybridize feminism of sexual difference and evolutionary biology today, as Grosz does in her paper “Sexual Difference as Sexual Selection: Irigarayan Reflections on Darwin.” In the end, this essay questions such a hybridization by confronting it with the difference between “instinct” and “drive” in Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, as well as Luce Irigaray.
