Description

In "The Gender Conundrum", Dana Birksted-Breen brings key psychoanalytic papers on the subject of femininity and masculinity from the very different British, French, and American perspectives. The papers are gathered around the central issue of the interplay of body and psyche in psychoanalysis. The editor sees the positive use of this given tension and duality as the key to real understanding of the questions currently surrounding gender identity. As well as addressing the outspoken controversy over the understanding of femininity, she shows that there has been a more silent revolution in the understanding of masculinity. Offering an international perspective, this collection of seminal papers, with introductions of exemplary clarity, fills a considerable gap in the literature, providing a classic text for psychoanalysis and gender studies. "The Gender Conundrum" is divided into four sections; the oedipus complex; the phallic question; the representation of the body; and bisexuality.
