Luce Irigaray is Director of Research in Philosophy at the Centre National de la Recherch Scientifique, Paris.
"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, University College London
