Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
In reflecting on the one-hundredth anniversary of Studies on Hysteria, I felt impelled to remember an earlier point, the seventy-fifth anniversary, in which the rebirth of the feminist movement occurred-a movement that had at least equal importance for the inventor of the "talking cure," Anna O., a movement that has been shadowing psychoanalysis since its inception and has, in our time, called for and led to a massive revision in how we view ourselves and the subjects of those original Studies. Read the first page

Brilliant and compelling -- not for the feeble-minded or the faint of heart Feb. 12 2008
By Elizabeth Grainger - Published on
Format: Paperback
As are all of Benjamin's books, Shadow of the Other is a brilliant work singular in its economy. Her insights into the intersections of power, gender, and the psyche are nothing short of spectacular. As ever, she avoids jargon; her vocabulary is precise and meaningful. I highly recommend this book.

Clear, concise, expansive Oct. 6 2013
By Dr. B - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The range of Benjamin's mind and vision is extraordinary. Especially in this post-modern, post-feminist, post-psychoanalytic age, we need to listen to her.

Not very clear... Dec 14 2007
By Michael Garfinkle - Published on
Format: Paperback
Benjamin's Shadow of the Object is filled with philosophical and psychoanalytic jargon that leaves one with the impression of being distracted from the absence of cogent argumentation. Not recommended.
