Contributing to our understanding of how scientific language functions., Luce Irigaray aims to dispel notion that scientific language is objective, unveiling the gendered - and, crucially, the prejudicial - dimensions of a range of psychoanalytic discourses. This selection of the range of Luce Irigaray's writings reveals the origin and development of many ideas central to her thought. The earliest essays included here reveal Irigaray's debt to structural linguistics and deconstruction drawn from her initial studies in the language of schizophrenia. The later essays present Irigaray's explorations of psychoanalysis and language.
