A collection of papers from British, French and American perspectives, examining the interplay of body and psyche in analysis.

Reviews and Endorsements

In The Gender Conundrum Dana Breen brings together for the first time key psychoanalytic papers on the subject of femininity and masculinity from the very different British, French, and American perspectives. These are gathered around the central issue of the interplay of body and psyche in psychoanalysis and by examining this interplay Dana Breen offers a way forward in the understanding of femininity. At the same time she shows how the outspoken controversy over femininity has masked a silent revolution in the understanding of masculinity. Offering an international perspective, with introductions of exemplary clarity, this collection of seminal papers fills a considerable gap in the literature, and provides a classic reference text for psychoanalysis and gender studies.
