Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1237. Reviews the book, Feminism and Psychoanalysis: A Critical Dictionary edited by Elizabeth Wright, Dianne Chisholm, Juliet Flower MacCannel, and Margaret Whitford (1992). Wright introduces this book as “not a dictionary in a conventional sense, for it does not merely define terms, but explores, historizes and politicizes them, nor does it pretend to present them objectively, but rather places them in the context of a dialogue between two discourses.” Her endeavor is to “generate critical intenmplications between feminism and psychoanalysis.” This very ambitious goal is accomplished with mixed success.
