Discusses research on the Others as being framed almost entirely within existing discursive systems. Discusses “liberal ideologies” and some problems with them. Contrasts them with “liberation ideologies.” Explores a bit on academic research’s influence on policy changes and the importance of challenging the ruling hegemonies especially in the academia. Finally, points out the inherited cultural attitudes towards the Others in Western cultures have influenced the British Deaf community (and other Deaf communities) throughout history.

Discusses the bio-power discursive system concerning the ‘Others’, specifically Deaf and disabled people, run by wealthy people, professionals and politicians. Touches upon the historical development of discourses in four stages of history showing how lay people and Deaf/disabled people have been split as the bio-power discursive system applies more specialism and professionalism. This split has serious consequences when the Deaf/disabled people disagrees with the system and wants to change it because of the four obstacles the system create.

Discusses six domains/types of discourses Dr. Ladd identified that Western majority societies delegate responsibility to rationalize and justify their oppressive actions upon “The Others.” They are political and administrative discourses, academic discourses, specialist discourses, medical discourses, scientific discourses and media discourses. They are all part of the discursive system that Deaf communities have to deal with.

Discusses the concept of “discourse analysis” in understanding how certain thinking, cultural values, and beliefs come to existence and those with prestigious discourses like in universities, medical establishments and communication media can establish “knowledge” and create the “discursive system.” This system has often been a tool of colonialism of minority cultures that do not have the same kind of “discourses” like those of majority cultures.
