Beyond The Family


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.” 


Bulent Somay’s previous books include Something is Missing: Things We Don’t Want to Know about LoveSex and LifeThe End of TruthThe Psychopolitics of the Oriental Father and The View from the Masthead
