Psyche and Eros: Mind and Gender in the Life Courseby Gisela Labouvie-Vief
Pub. Date: 03/28/2006
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Asserting that the core experience of development differs along gender lines, the classical Greek myth of the gods Psyche and Eros serves as an evocative illustration of the author's theory, which argues that competition between masculine and feminine parts of the mind has limited developmental growth.
