Description - Feminism and Its Discontents by Mari Jo Buhle

With Sigmund Freud flummoxed about what women want, any encounter between psychoanalysis and feminism would seem to promise a standoff. Yet, Mari Jo Buhle argues that the 20th-century's two great theories of liberation actually had a great deal to tell each other. Starting with Freud's 1909 speech to an audience that included the feminist and radical Emma Goldman, Buhle recounts the twists and turns this exchange took in the United States up to the 1990s American vogue of Jacques Lacan. While chronicling the contributions of feminism to the development of psychoanalysis, she also makes a case for the benefits psychoanalysis brought to feminism.
