Siblings by Juliet Mitchell

Book Description

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. In the Western world our thought is completely dominated by a vertical model, by patterns of descent or ascent: mother or father to child, or child to parent. Yet our ideals are a liberty, equality and fraternitya or the a sisterhooda of feminism; our ethnic wars are the violence of a fratricidea . When we grow up, siblings feature prominently in sex, violence and the construction of gender differences but they are absent from our theories. This book examines the reasons for this omission and begins the search for a new paradigm based on siblings and lateral relationships. This book will be essential reading for those studying sociology, psychoanalysis and gender studies. It will also appeal to a wide general readership.

Love Poetry by Juliet Mitchell Love Poetry, Hardback (April 2014)

Love poems speak to us in a host of different ways: from Sappho and Horace through Shakespeare, Donne, Barrett-Browning and Dickinson to Kipling and Yeats. This title brings you a collection of firm favourites, poems half-remembered from our school days, and other notable verses that have stood the test of 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.
