Simple logic tells us that behind every man is a woman. These insightful essays are about the female sexual system out of which man has evolved. In the author's view, Western philosophical thought based upon rationality developed largely by our sons has not reached effulgence. However, that which is human necessarily originates with the mother. It is she rather than the son who possesses the way, the property and means, by which to unify us as a species and to keep us human. This original work covers such areas as motherhood and the mathematics of 1 and 2, maternal consciousness of language, gender, man's place in the mother's world, and the limit of man's philosophy of man. The essays were written for the purpose of inspiring every woman to think of herself as wealthy in her own right in sole virtue of her gender and procreative genius.
