Elizabeth A. Wilson explores the convergence between Derrida, Freud and recent cognitive theory to pursue two important issues: the nature of cognition and neurology, and the politics of feminist and critical interventions into contemporary scientific psychology. This book seeks to reorient the usual presumptions of critical studies of the sciences by addressing the divisions between the static and the changeable; the natural and the political; and the neuro-cognitive and the cultural that have been traditional to both scientific and critical accounts of neurology and cognition.
