Luce Irigaray: the (un)dutiful daughter of psychoanalysis. A feminist ‘moving through and beyond’ the phallogocentric discourse of psychoanalysis.


In this paper, I tried to sketch out Luce Irigaray's ambiguous relationship with the tradition of western psychoanalysis. I evaluated her critiques on Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, and defended the idea that she succeeds at transcending the many feminist evils of psychoanalysis as a tradition, by feminizing the psychoanalytical practice.
