Synopsis

Synopsis

"A seminal text in the womenís movement."
–Ethel S. Person, author of The Sexual Century

"Still the most important work of feminist psychoanalytic exploration, its re-release is a celebratory occasion."
–Eli Sagan, author of Freud, Women and Mortality

"[The Mermaid and the Minotaur] continues to astonish us with the depth and wisdom of its psychoanalytic approach even as its major ideas have become as unobtrusively essential to psychoanalytic feminism as the atmosphere."
–Jessica Benjamin, author of The Bonds of Love
