The span of Irigaray's analysis of Western civilization is breathtaking; every cultural manifestation from language to marriage, from religion to science, from psychoanalysis to literature, takes on fresh meaning in the light of her powerful vision. Irigaray's analysis of patriarchy is both compelling and revealing but the question of "What is to be done?" retains all its potential for controversy. The direction of these essays will strike chords with some and provoke others to violent disagreement. Sexes and Genealogies will add considerably to our understanding of the complexity and implications of Irigaray's thought.
