Psychoanalysis and Feminism by Juliet Mitchell

Book Description

A groundbreaking book-the first to argue that feminism must draw on psychoanalysis to understand the ideological oppression of women.. In 1974, at the height of the women's movement, Juliet Mitchell shocked her fellow feminists by challenging the entrenched belief that Freud was the enemy. She argued that a rejection of psychoanalysis as bourgeois and patriarchal was fatal for feminism. However it may have been used, she pointed out, psychoanalysis is not a recommendation for a patriarchal society, but rather an analysis of one. "If we are interested in understanding and challenging the oppression of women," she says, "we cannot afford to neglect psychoanalysis." In an introduction written specially for this reissue, Mitchell reflects on the changing relationship between these two major influences on twentieth-century thought. Original and provocative, Psychoanalysis and Feminism remains an essential component of the feminist canon.

Books By Author Juliet Mitchell

Woman's Estate by Juliet Mitchell Woman's Estate, Paperback (December 2014)

Combining the energy of the early seventies feminist liberation movement, with the perceptive analyses of the trained theorist, Women's Estate is one of the most influential socialist feminist statements of its time.

Siblings by Juliet Mitchell Siblings, Paperback (November 2003)

Siblings and all the lateral relationships that follow from them are clearly important and their interaction is widely observed, particularly in creative literature. Yet in the social, psychological and political sciences, there is no theoretical paradigm through which we might understand them.

Mad Men and Medusas by Juliet Mitchell Mad Men and Medusas, Paperback (August 2001)

This is an investigation of the history of hysteria which argues for its resuscitation in understanding the human condition. The author uses her clinical experience, classic case histories and Freud's own self-analysis to show how male hysteria came to be written out of psychoanalysis.

Jacques Lacan is arguably the most controversial psychoanalyst of our time.
