about this item

Feminine Law: Freud, Free Speech, and the Voice of Desire explores the conjunction between psychoanalysis and democracy, in particular their shared commitments to free speech. In the process, it demonstrates how lawful constraints enable an embodied space or “gap” for the potentially disruptive but also liberating and novel flow of desire and its symbols. This space, intuited by the First Amendment as it is by Freud’s free association, enables personal and collective sovereignty. By naming a “feminine law,” we mark the primacy a space between the conceivable and the inconceivable, between knowledge and mystery.
