Shadow of the Other — Intersubjectivity and Gender in Psychoanalysis. By Jessica Benjamin. New York and London: Routledge. Pp. 129. £12.99.

Review by:
Emilia Steuerman

Jessica Benjamin is a psychoanalyst, a feminist, and a philosopher working in the United States. She is particularly interested in the relationship between the self and the other, and how the identifications with (or negations of) the other are at the core of our identities. Indeed, the question of subjectivity and the world (or self and the other) is a crucial and overlapping area of study for philosophy, feminism and psychoanalysis. The book is divided into three parts, all of them related to the main theme of the recognition and denial of the self and the other in the more general quest for ‘authorship’ as a true sense of self.
