Book Information

   

Title: To Speak is Never Neutral
Written By: Luce Irigaray
Series Title: Athlone Contemporary European Thinkers
Description:

'To Speak is Never Neutral' is a most important and thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of how scientific language functions. Dispelling once and for all the notion that scientific language is objective, Luce Irigaray unveils the gendered - and, crucially, the prejudicial - dimensions of a range of psychoanalytic discourses. Challenging and provocative, this book is also a significant ethical intervention into debates both about how we speak today and about how content itself is never neutral.'
Michael Worton `To Speak is Never Neutral' presents a vital selection of the range of Luce Irigaray's writings, revealing the origin and development of many ideas central to her thought.

The earliest essays in this collection reveal Irigaray's debt to structural linguistics and deconstruction drawn from her initial studies in the language of schizophrenia. The later essays present her highly original explorations of psychoanalysis and language. Seminal essays include 'The Rape of the Letter', 'Sex as Sign', 'The Setting in Psychoanalysis', 'The Poverty of Psychoanalysis', 'The Language of Man', 'The Limits of Transference' and 'In Science, Is the Subject Sexed?'
