Luce Irigaray is known for her radical critique of Freud and Lacan, and for brilliantly re-thinking the foundations of Western philosophy from the point of view of the feminine. In this three-hour course, we will bring into focus the key ideas of her early works, ‘Speculum of the Other: Woman’, ‘This Sex Which Is Not One’, and ‘An Ethics of Sexual Difference’, and review the recent direction of her thinking.

All registrants will receive their link to join via Zoom. Course material will be sent 1 day before the event. Time includes a tea break. All attendees will also receive access to the recording, available to watch back for 3 months.

Keith Barrett BA PhD received his first degree in philosophy from Oxford University after having spent three years working as a nursing assistant in psychiatric hospitals. It was in this practical context that Keith first encountered existentialism and psychoanalysis. He then began postgraduate studies on both Freud and Heidegger, leading finally to a PhD from the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL for a dissertation on ‘Freud’s Self-Analysis’. Keith has been a philosophy teacher for over 20 years, and has been delivering courses at the Freud Museum for over a decade, where he has developed a series of introductory lectures on Freud, psychoanalysis after Freud, and exploring the overlap of philosophy and psychoanlaysis.
