Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Shepherdson, a Member in the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, argues that French psychoanalysis has been misinterpreted in relation to the nature/culture distinction, and suggests that this distinction should neither be refused nor taken for granted. Through examinations of works by French philosophers such as Lacan and Foucault and lesser known authors such as Catherine Millot, he introduces a new feminist critique in which sex and the body are not bound by either nature or culture.
