Review by:
Yvonne Lynton Reid

Edited by:
Linda Carter and Marcus West

In this book Frances Gray proposes a revision of the concept of individuation via a ‘conversation’ between C.G. Jung and Luce Irigaray, based on the commonality of interests between the two theorists. Both Jung and Irigaray regard the sexes as ontologically separate and the concepts of masculine and feminine as central. Luce Irigaray is a philosopher as well as an analyst and, as Frances Gray demonstrates, some of the philosophers with whom she engages have clearly influenced Jung. Each thinker has an interest in Eastern religion and both recognize the fundamental importance of spirituality to human being.
