Beyond Family: A Case for Another Regime of Reproduction, Sexuality and Kinship

Bülent Somay

Beginning by declaring ‘Familia delenda est!’ or “the Family is (to be) destroyed” Bülent Somay argues that the nuclear family is repressive and regressive and needs to be replaced. 


“The family has now become a hindrance against expanding our horizons, increasing our knowledge, imagining and experimenting new modes of existence, not only for women, but also for children who will become men, women, straight and gay persons, transgender and fluid-gender people, in short, all of us.” 


Bülent Somay’s previous books include Something is Missing: Things We Don’t Want to Know about Love, Sex and Life, The End of Truth, The Psychopolitics of the Oriental Father and The View from the Masthead
