Summary:
Lévi-Strauss tried to convince women that we are spoken, exchanged like words; Lacan tried to teach women we can't speak, because the phallus is the original signifier; and then Derrida says that it doesn't matter, it's just talk.Foucault, Derrida, Lacan, Nietzsche: the chant resonates through universities around the world. Have you ever tried to untangle the words of postmodernist theorists? How to find your way through the labyrinth to sense and clarity? If so, this is the book for you.
