Description - Shadow of the Other by Jessica Benjamin

This text is a discussion of how the individual has two sorts of relationships with an "other" - other individuals. The first regards the other as a seperate but equivalent centre of being who can be known and can recognize oneself in return. The second uses the other as a mental repository for unwanted characteristics cast from the self. The author shows the implications of this dual relationship for male/female hierarchy and offers a possibility for balancing the two. The book continues the author's explorations of the themes of intersubjectivity and gender, taking up issues at the forefront of debates in feminist theory and psychoanalysis.
