MASSO GUIJARRO, Ester. Female sexuality, epistemological holism and complexity: reflections for contemporary life. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.2, pp. 467-480. ISSN 1805-9584.

Starting from the recognition of the globalized world's complex condition and the need of a holistic consideration of its interconnected phenomena, this paper will present a defense of the complex perspective of the female sexuality, including the suggestion and defense of erotic holism as a possible source of proposals and solutions for the dilemmas posed by the 'global era'. The problematization of female sexuality and eroticism from the holistic paradigm of complexity will be a pretext for the consideration of the current global problems through a different and multidisciplinary perspective, by pointing out existing reductionist mono-explanatory paradigms.

Keywords : Epistemological Holism; Female Sexuality and Erotism; Globalization; Multidisciplinarity.
