My friend Jon and me played 4 hours of music on Swedish music radio last Saturday. The set is now up on Soundcloud (apart form like the first minute, some technical difficulties).
You refuse to admit that the unconscious ± your concept of the unconscious ± did not spring fully armed from Freud’s head, that it was not produced ex nihilo at the end of the nineteenth century, emerging suddenly to reimpose its truth on the whole of history ± world history at that ± past, present and future. The unconscious is revealed as such, heard as such, spoken as such and interpreted as such within a tradition. It has a place within, by and through culture.
—Luce Irigaray 1991: 80
If I have any agency, it is opened up by the fact that I am constituted by a social world I never chose. That my agency is riven with paradox does not mean it is impossible. It means only that paradox is the condition of its possibility.
