differences began publishing in the midst of a climate change in feminist relations to psychoanalysis and the question of sexual difference. As many scholars began to pay theoretical attention to other kinds of difference as well as sexual differences, some argued that this obligation entailed not just a widening of focus but a critique of psychoanalysis as ahistorical and an abandonment of the notion of sexual difference in favor of gender. Gender, Copjec argues in this paper, is a neutered term; it eliminates sex. It is time, this essay proposes, to provide an ontological reflection on sex and sexuality.
