Description - The Interpretation of the Flesh by Teresa Brennan

The Interpretation of the Flesh unites the Lacanian and Kleinian object-relations theories used in feminist debates on psychoanalysis today. It does so as it dissects Freud's writings, proposing a solution to his riddle of femininity. The solution depends upon unravelling Freud's neglected if confused theories of psychical energy, while discarding the assumption that the subject' is energetically and emotionally self-contained. In this, Teresa Brennan offers a new way of thinking about the relationship between the psychical, the social and the physical. More than this: The Interpretation of the Flesh shows how femininity' is a literal physical weight on the shoulders of those who carry it, and how that weight might be lifted.
