The term 'phallogocentrism' is a condensation of phallocentrism and logocentrism coined by Derrida to describe how Lacan perpetuates the traditional philosophical view that the word or logos is the site of truth by making the phallus the key signifier that both governs access to the symbolic, or language, and determines sexual difference.
