"Feminism keeps saying the sexes are the same. It keeps telling women
they can do anything, go anywhere, say anything, wear anything. No
they can't! Women will always be in sexual danger.... ....We must
remedy social injustice whenever we can. But there are some things we
cannot change. There are sexual differences that are based in biology.
Academic feminism is lost in a fog of social constructionism. It
believes we are totally the product of our environment. This idea was
invented by Rousseau. He was wrong. Emboldened by dumb French language
theory, academic feminists repeat the same hollow slogans over and
over to each other. Their view of sex is naïve and prudish. Leaving
sex to the feminists is like letting your dog vacation at the

"The conjunction of Lacanian-influenced psychoanalysis and feminist

Between Feminism and Psychoanalysis, edited by Teresa Brennan
(King's College, Cambridge) outstanding feminist critics in Britain,
France and the United States present new perspectives on feminism and
psychoanalysis, opening out deadlocked debates.... The
contributors....write against the received views on 'French feminism'
and essentialism. They analyse the lack of a female symbolic. They
re-read Freud for a different theory of knowledge and set Lacan
against Aristotle for an alternative account of social and political
causality. They rethink the role of Woman in Derrida's thought and

JUST as a hundred years ago the Victorians worried about reconciling
Darwin with God, today every honest mind must be perturbed by
what appears to be the mounting scientific evidence of racial
differences. This perturbation is all the greater because of the
dishonesty and personal viciousness that characterized much of
the reaction to The Bell Curve when it broke the taboo
on public discussion of the issue last year. Since much of the
evidence was already well known to scholars, the question now
must be whether science will inform politics or politics chill
science. This book, although by respected scholars, appears to
be evidence that politics is winning. It has been advertised as
an antidote to The Bell Curve because of a passage proclaiming
the 'scientific failure of the concept of human races' due to
the problem of overlap and gradation between groups. Of course
overlaps and gradations exist in all systems of classification,
but taxonomy remains fundamental to science. And the genetic evidence
in the balance of the book makes clear that human beings can indeed
be grouped roughly in accordance with traditional racial divisions.
