Abstract:

'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?'
