The feminist movement also included the liberation of feminine sexuality with which psychoanalysis deals as well. However, the first feminist movement was directed more in the political rights of women and only later, at the decade , dealt with questions of identity and recognized the contribution of psychoanalysis with regard to the determination of significance of woman's mentality.
What we would examine is how psychoanalysis evolved within feminism and then analyze how Nancy Chorodorow constructs her ideas on the connection between psychoanalysis and feminism. However, in the general assembly of the Union in moderate and conservative opinions dominated, which resulted to change of the political direction.
Individuals were a product of heredity and they owed to be subjugated in the needs of race and nation. In medicine field some important changes took place while it is realized that the two sexes differ physiologically and mentally sic. Up to that period the woman's body was considered to be represented by men's body even the period women would have equivalence with men's body. However, psychological illnesses were ignored by the medical texts and the subject of feminine sexuality did not concern the gynecologists.
Freud was not the first doctor to deal with the female sexuality. Since the beginning of 19th century, doctors Moser and Bush developed different opinions in the field of female sexuality.
Bush claimed that sexuality constitutes an important factor for hysteria while Charcot considered that there was no relation 1 Hysteria is undoubtedly the first mental disorder attributable to women, accurately described in the second millennium BC, and until Freud considered an exclusively female disease. Over years of history, this disease was considered from two perspectives: scientific and demonological.
It was cured with herbs, sex or sexual abstinence, punished and purified with fire for its association with sorcery and finally, clinically studied as a disease and treated with innovative therapies. However, even at the end of 19th century, scientific innovation had still not reached some places, where the only known therapies were those proposed by Galen.
During the 20th century several studies postulated the decline of hysteria amongst occidental patients both women and men and the escalating of this disorder in non-Western countries. Studying these biographies which presented hysteria studies, it would be easy to realize that many of the participants were members of the feminist movement in Germany or in some other Socialist movements.
This fact declares that these progressive movements communicated without excluding one another Bidali, Freud hesitated to express an internal female or male entity, while he had already placed himself in favor of an internal bisexual inclination. Apart from that, for Freud the identity of sex is not just a result of simple identification with the parent of same sex. Since until he published three relative articles, while some women psychoanalysts published opinions opposite to his views.
The questioning on the subject of femininity came from another team of Psychoanalytical Union whose basic representatives were Karl Abraham, Karen Horney and Melanie Klein.
Bertha took flight, first in a fantasy world she called her "private theater" and then in illness. The first symptoms appeared in the fall of , at a time when Bertha looked after her father who had fallen ill with a pleurisy that was to prove fatal. Bertha had a persistent cough and at the end of November Josef Breuer was called upon. Breuer was the physician of the Jewish high bourgeoisie and aristocracy in Vienna.
He diagnosed a hysteria, upon which Bertha took to her bed and developed "in rapid succession" an impressive array of symptoms: pain in the left side of the occiput, blurred vision, hallucinations, various contractures and anesthesia, trigeminal neuralgia, "aphasia" from March she spoke only in English , split personality and altered states of consciousness "absences" during which she threw tantrums that afterwards she could not remember.
Breuer, who came to see her every day, noticed that her condition was improving each time he let her tell during her "absences" the sad stories of her private theater - a process she termed in English "talking cure" or "chimney sweeping". Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen, page. Appignanesi, Forester, Karen Horney claimed that the theory of castration anxiety supported that the half human population felt some dissatisfaction with his anatomy. This conclusion however could not become acceptable neither from the woman's narcissism movement nor the science of biology.
Her criticism was published in and in In a unique case in , Melanie Klein wrote a statement in which she disputed Freud in regard to his views on femininity. She supported that there exists a primary phase, similar for the babies of any biological sex, which is a female phase. She substantiated this fact on the basis that the oral and anal phase the excitation goal is passive, receptive and amalgamative.
From very early Klein considers the female child being occupied with her own reproductive body and the babies. The relation of mother and child is central for Helen Deutsch as well who claims that the sexuality of a young girl leads her from lactation and sucking to the movement of uterus at the sexual intercourse and the masochistic co-identity with the mother in pregnancy and birth.
When the girl reaches the point of nursing her own baby, the woman supplements the circle Deutsch, Feminist movements in the decades of and were in a way reproducers of the claims of feminist movements of 19th and of the beginning of 20th. Certain rights as the vote and being elected or academic education and professional employment in the public services have been conquered.
As the basic feminist claims have been materialized, feminists also increased their theoretical analysis on feminism, while many groups or organizations tried to theoretically secure their opinions. In this frame many books were written and as a result many ideas and arguments set off as well. The Freudian conflict continued in the Anglo-Saxon page.
In London, where Melanie Klein lived and worked until , the psychoanalytical faculty of Object Relations was founded which gives particular accent in the relation of mother and child. The American feminist Nancy Chodorow had been influenced later in her work from these opinions. The limits of relation are more distinguishable for a girl in contrast to a boy.
In the USA on the other hand, some feminists as Karen Horney and Helen Deutsch lived after the war and developed their theories affecting the next generation of feminists. Deutsch had in mind an ideal type of erotic woman, this type created a standard in order to compare all other types and all real women. Rosen, However, at the same time new opinions for woman's gender appeared, often reported in Freud, such as those of Simone de Beauvoir Beauvoir rejects Freud because she considered that he attributed a certain superiority to man which Beauvoir attributes exclusively in social constructions.
Another worth examining personality is Nancy Chodorow. Nancy Chodorow is a feminist sociologist and psychoanalyst and she is regarded as the leader of psychoanalytic feminist theorists and she had explored many ideas on how psychoanalysis connects to feminist theories.
The male children form this sense of independence easily, because they identify with the father and detach from their mothers. On the other hand, this procedure is not that simple for the female children.
The mother identifies with them in a more powerful way and female children tend to make the father their new love object, but are stymied in their ego formation by the strong connection with their mother.
For Chodorow, the contrast between the dyadic and triadic first love experiences explains the social construction of gender roles and the oppression of women. She claims in other words that because of that women grow up and remain more connected to others. As she underlines, Freud made gender and sexuality central to his theory.
She points that psychoanalysis, after Freud, made a feminist argument that women and men are made and not born, that biology is not enough to explain sexual orientation or gender personality. In other words Freud helped in developing arguments on how and why gender roles were constructed this way in society.
Chodorow, , p. As it appears, psychoanalysis and feminism had set different paths even from the beginning setting this way a narrow relation between them. This relation was not easy at all and in some cases, it would be characterized from ambivalence.
Undeniably, psychoanalysis as a treatment was connected with women and gave them voice as well allowing them to speak up for issues strictly prohibited such as sexuality and the negative feelings. Ultimately, we could see that feminists tried to fight with the interpretations Freud supported and they criticized them without however accomplish to bring up any opposite opinion that would avoid the biological determinism and conservatism. Today the contribution of Psychoanalytical Theory in feminist studies is important and it has become, as it has been noted, a great acceptance that this theory opened new horizons in order that women think and discuss issues of the feminist movement overcoming all bias that they had met.

In Feminism and Psychoanalytic Theory she brings together a series of essays that trace the evolution of her thinking about self, society, and gender from its early beginnings to its mature development. This book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in both feminism and psychoanalysis.

Звонки в агентства услуг сопровождения ничего не дали. Коммандер, недовольный необходимостью говорить по линии, не защищенной от прослушивания, попросил Дэвида не звонить, пока кольцо не окажется в его руках. Он решил было обратиться в полицию - может быть, у них есть данные о рыжеволосых проститутках, - но Стратмор на этот счет выразился недвусмысленно: Вы должны оставаться невидимым. Никто не должен знать о существовании кольца. Может быть, стоит побродить по Триане, кварталу развлечений, и поискать там эту рыжую девицу.
