Why Do Women Love Men and not Their Mothers? By Marie-Christine Hamon. Translated by Susan Fairfield. New York: Other Press, 2000. 251 pp.

Review by:
Nancy Kulish

In this book, the French Lacanian psychoanalyst, Marie-Christine Hamon, examines the question, posed by Freud, of how and why girls change their love objects from mother to father in the course of psychosexual development. The book does not provide a novel or creative answer to these questions, but rather a careful, well-documented exposition of Freud's thinking on this subject, as well as that of the early psychoanalytic pioneers around him. In addition, Hamon evaluates and reframes this material in terms of her own Lacanian perspectives.
