Shadow of the Other by Jessica Benjamin
Book DescriptionShadow of the Other is a discussion of how the individual has two sorts of relationships with an "other"--other beings, other individuals. The first regards the other as an entirely different being from oneself, but one which is still recognizable. The second understands and recognizes this other by its function as a repository of characteristics cast from oneself. In recognizing how this dual relationship is reconciled within the self, and its implications in male/female relations, Jessica Benjamin continues her exploration of intersubjectivity and gender, taking up questions of contemporary debates in feminist theory and psychoanalysis.

From the perspectives of developmental psychoanalysis, this book makes a case for what the author calls "gender heterodoxy", an original view of the similarities and differences between the sexes. In the process, she illuminates aspects of love, sexuality, aggression and pornography.
