Semiotic Subversion 1
Kristeva has a theory of marginality, dissidence, and subversion. These semiotic forms of signification donít fit in the rational symbolic order and thus threaten their sovereignty and so have been relegated to the margins of discourse. (Sarup).
Repression of the nonlinear, i.e., an alternative consciousness and perception of the world, is the result of the ascendancy of patriarchy and logocentricism that privileges male rationality, . . . Repression of arationality suppresses both the female and human unconsciousness. . . Challenge the domination of the androcentric construction of the mind as rational ego . . .
