Does Luce Irgarays work represent the possibility of individuation for women, an escape from masculine projection and an affirming re-figuring of women? And what would individuation for women entail? This work postulates a novel and unique relationship between Carl Jung and Luce Irigaray. Its central argument, that an ontologically different feminine identity situated in womens embodiment, womens genealogy and a womens divine is possible, develops and re-figures Jungs notion of individuation in terms of an Irigarayan woman-centred politics.

Individuation is re-thought as a politically charged issue centred around sex-gendered difference focussed on a critique of Jungs conception of the feminine. The book outlines Platos conception of the feminine as disorder and argues that this conception is found in Jungs notion of the anima feminine. It then argues that Luce Irigarays work challenges the notion of the feminine as disorder.

Her mimetic adoption of this figuring of the feminine is a direct assault on what can be understood as a culturally dominant Western understanding.
