Luce Irigaray argues for a female divine to be able to version an excellent female simply because the masculine divine versions a masculine excellent. In making her claims, Luce Irigaray, the publication argues, is increasing and elaborating Jung's notion of individuation.

draw out the reterritorializations of the latter. spotting the impossibility of entire
reterritorialization I map one artifact that reinvests distinction in itself, Dancer within the
Dark(2000). eventually, within the epilogue I offer a quick recapitulation of adlescent politics,
